Corporate giving to change a nation
New Balance Foundation Obesity Prevention Center at Boston Children’s
The New Balance Foundation has had a tremendous impact on the strength and scope of the Obesity Prevention Center at Boston Children’s—accelerating scientific inquiry and enabling its translation into prevention initiatives for kids that work.
Their vital philanthropic investment has allowed us to answer critical research questions and disseminate our work in more than 90 scientific publications and articles in the last 10 years. They have enabled the creation of innovative, replicable programs that are changing the way kids and their parents think about nutrition and physical activity.
The New Balance Foundation’s leadership and partnership has positioned Boston Children’s Hospital among the nation’s foremost authorities on pediatric obesity prevention and treatment, giving us a stronger voice as advocates for pediatric health.
Their continued generosity has allowed us to expand and enhance clinical care through innovative pediatric collaborations, advance childhood obesity research and spread helpful knowledge/resources across the country and the world through unique collaborations with community organizations, community health centers, schools, pediatric practices, children and families. The Boston Children’s fit kit was created through this support and provides virtual nutrition, fitness activities and information for optimal wellness.
