Why Sponsor?

With generous private donations, Knockout Obesity piloted its innovative program model at The Boys’ Club of New York in 2013 and officially launched its “KO Program” at Grand Street Settlement’s Bushwick-Hylan Cornerstone Center in 2014. Encouraged by the results and positive feedback received from participating children and community centers, Knockout Obesity aims to expand programming with the generous support of sponsors. If childhood obesity is not adequately addressed, the children of Brooklyn will be at increased risk for negative outcomes associated with childhood obesity: serious illness, low self-esteem, academic struggles, and decreased productivity. We have the power to put Brooklynites in control of their health.
