Healthy Weight Commitment Foundation Event at Dupont Elementary

Healthy Weight Commitment Foundation Event at Dupont Elementary

I was the photographer for a special event in Hopewell, Virginia.  Dupont Elementary School won a $30,000 sweepstakes for a new playground from Healthy Weight Commitment Foundation.  See their website at : http://www.healthyweightcommit.org/  The Healthy Weight Commitment Foundation, a CEO-led organization, is a national, multi-year effort designed to help reduce obesity–especially childhood obesity–by 2015. It’s a first-of-its kind coalition that brings together more than 200 retailers, food and beverage manufacturers, restaurants, sporting goods and insurance companies, trade associations and non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and professional sports organizations. The Healthy Weight Commitment Foundation (HWCF) promotes ways to help people achieve a healthy weight through energy balance–calories in and calories out. It focuses its efforts on two critical areas—families and schools.  First Lady of Virginia, Maureen McDonnell, was on hand to help celebrate this event…AND…it was her birthday.  The children joined in and sang Happy Birthday.
