WPSM + Childhood Obesity Prevention

The use of sport, fitness, and nutrition to combat childhood obesity

WPSM’s mission for childhood obesity prevention is to ensure that children and young adults growing up in urban areas of Georgia and Virginia have a chance at a healthy start in life by understanding the purpose of leading a healthy lifestyle through proper nutrition, sports, and fitness.


The first step is education - teaching them the right foods to eat and helping them find fun ways to stay active. The importance of nutrition and fitness education can make the difference between a child growing up healthy and confident or making poor eating choices for the rest of their lives.


We provide fitness camps, community gardens, and special sporting events for children and young adults. In addition to promoting physical activity, these events teach children about healthy eating and the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

Join us! Together we can help our kids grow up strong and to make health a priority. We owe it to the next generation to change the trajectory of the unhealthy path they're heading down.
