Each year, rates of chronic diseases like type-2 diabetes, obesity, and liver disease – conditions once associated with the sick and elderly – rise among children, from toddlers to teenagers.
And yet each year, more schools reduce their physical education programs. Recess is becoming a thing of the past. Cafeteria food, deeply flawed nutrition education, and sugar-stocked vending machines only contribute to the problem. And schools where children grow up in poverty, food deserts, and disadvantaged communities pose even greater challenges to kids’ health.

Suicide Football Pool at CrossFit Ephrata- Steve Diem is putting together a Suicide football pool, cost to play is $5. How it works- there will be a form on the whiteboard in the front of the gym. Simply put your name in a slot and give $5 to the pot (the cash jar at the gym). For week 1 add your team you think will win (in pen, no cheating) . If your team wins you advance to week 2. If your team loses you are out. The challenge is you can not pick the same team twice! Your pick needs to be made before the Thursday night game each week. If you do not put your team pick in then you are done! Good luck! Winner or winners split the pot!
