Review for ALLEN ROSSUM HEALTHY KIDS KLUB INC, Duluth, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have worked with the Allen Rossum Healthy Kids Klub for over 5 years and it is truly a remarkable organization, dedicated to serving and educating youth about the dangers of obesity. The HKK provides youth with fantastic programming and tools to help fight obesity and live significantly healthier lifestyles. The ED is amazing and reaches many youths who would otherwise not learn about the value living a health-concious and substance-free life.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the passion and thoughtfulness they bring the table. The HKK has continously amazed me with how well they plan and execute events to create tangible impact in the communities they serve.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

all very engaged and committed to the mission of the organization.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

reduce the percent of children who suffer from obesity (and subsequently - diabetes, adult-onset diabetes, heart disease, etc...) in the US. By rolling out broader programming, the HKK could touch more children, improve their health education and increase the amount of education children recieve around healthy lifestyles.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2008

Role:  Board Member & Helped with initial strategy and volunteered at several programs/events.
