About This Activity

Obesity is a rising concern in the United States.  It is one of the leading causes in the escalating cost of healthcare.  More than one third of our nation’s population is considered obese.  That is 34.9% or 78.6 million people to be exact.  However, there is good news.  Childhood obesity has decreased from 13.9% in 2004 to 8.4% in 2012 and continued to hold steady throughout 2014. 


The St Luke’s Weight Management Center is taking an active role in making everyone aware of the importance of becoming active in the fight against obesity by hosting our 1st Annual Healthy Steps at Any Size 5K Walk.  Our hope is to encourage people of all sizes and shapes to participate in this activity, promote the importance of just moving, have some fun and exercise while doing it.
