HOUSTON LATINO HEALTHY COMMUNITY FUN DAY SERIES

Educational budget cuts and standardized testing foci are diminishing physical activity and physical education in our nation’s school system.  As a result, childhood obesity rates have grown and continue to do so in enormous proportions.  Sedentary technology and unhealthy eating habits also play major roles by enabling us and promoting inactive lifestyles.  Almost 1 of every 3 children are overweight or obese, which opens the door to diabetes, high blood pressure and other cancerous health related diseases that stem from lack of proper nutrition and exercise.

Houston Parks and Recreations Department and Quality Wellness (Faith IN Fitness, Sports For Achieving Wellness and QualityCARE programs) have created platforms to service the Denver Harbor, Sagemont, Mason Park, Milby Park and surrounding communities.  The bible says that because of a lack of knowledge people perish, so by giving proper knowledge about nutrition, exercise, kinesiology and how to fight the many diseases that come from the lack thereof we can help solve many of today’s major health issues.

Paul Queen of Quality Wellness believes that as a result of a lack of proper physical education along with certain financial and familial circumstances, disadvantaged youth do not have the resources to be inspired to participate and succeed. Thus, QW seeks to provide the missing resources through a stimulating and enriching environment; one that will sustain the interests of youth and produce young thinkers who are positive change-agents in their community.
