“Being idle has imperiled our children.  In fact, this may be the first generation of children who won’t outlive their parents.  To combat this problem, I’ve declared war on childhood obesity!  This is an issue everyone can back.  This is not a democrat or republican issue, it’s a kids’ issue and every governor I’ve met with has vowed to work with me to put an end to this growing problem.  I’ve always said that academics and fitness go hand-in-hand and I firmly believe that if you provide the schools with the tools, students will excel beyond their wildest dreams and this program is proving me right!
