The Sally Fitzgibbons Foundation has been established to realise Sally’s dream to inspire our next generation of kids to live active and healthy lives.
The general change in pace of life today has led to people often feeling time poor. With so many instant gratification and quick preparation, nutrition poor, food products on market, the first thing to give is often the quality preparation of family meals at home. This combined with the incredible insurgence of digital screen consumption by children is already defining the future of millions of innocent children.
One in four Aussie kids in Australia are already overweight, or obese. Obesity is now a bigger killer than smoking and the costs to the economy will surpass $87.7 billion by 2025.
“I can’t just sit by and watch the next generation lose out on following their dreams just because they were never taught the basic benefits of healthy eating and being active. If, together, we can all make a difference to just one child, imagine how great their future will be.” -SALLY FITZGIBBONS
This is a real problem, with real ramifications, which requires real action.
The positive news is the disease can be prevented and the foundation will provide fun and inclusive education and exercise programs, that resonate with 5-12 year old children.
Our mission is to give as many children as we can a fair opportunity at a healthy future.
