Help Us Retake First Place

The campaign to win a $50,000 grant through the Aetna Foundation’s online Fight Childhood Obesity Grant Contest is hot, and we really need your help.

Thanks to the many of you who’ve already voted and generated more than 14,100 votes. However, we’re in a distant 2nd place to the Connecticut Girl Scouts, and the third place holder is nipping at our heels. So, we need everyone who knows all the great work we do to keep kids healthy and ready to learn to generate thousands more votes for us.Hear why Idida Perez at Chopin Elementary in Chicago thinks Action for Healthy Kids deserves your votes. If everyone who supports us votes 25 times – and encourages family, friends and colleagues to do so – we can win!

If you haven’t voted yet, please take just a few minutes and do it now. Then, use the share tools provided by the foundation to pass the word through your personal networks. It’s easy. Remember, a vote for Action for Healthy Kids is a vote to end childhood obesity and we can’t do it without you.

Thank you for voting for Action for Healthy Kids!
