Chula Vista, CA – Participants from Dale Holmes Racing’s, “Ride to End Obesity Program”, an interactive program offered as part of the ASES after school programming at Poway Unified School District, where middle school-aged children learn about proper nutrition, the importance of exercise, bike and street safety and the sport of BMX racing with an opportunity to ride bicycles through staged obstacles onsite at schools, will attend the last round of the UCI BMX World Cup Series to witness first-hand the competitive side of the sport.

“I really had fun learning about being healthy and riding the bmx bikes when you visited our school last spring. I am excited about seeing professional bikers this weekend at the Olympic Training Site”, said Daniel, a student participant of Ride to End Obesity.

Get Moving – Ride To End Obesity

According to Dr. Sanjay Gupta of CNN, sugar makes up 16% of young people in America’s diet. Not only is this contributing to a staggering number of overweight and obese youngsters but is also being linked directly to cancer and stroke. It is vitally important that we all do our part to get involved. To get young people educated on what their eating and drinking and how it affects them today and in 20 years from now. The goal is to inspire them to take action and to make small steps today, as we know eating better and getting more active over time will yield great results in the long-term. Here are a number of pictures from our team’s two visits to Poway Unified last week. The tour continues with several more visits slated later this month, which is so fitting as May is National Bike Month! Get Moving…
