Alliance for a Healthier Generation
The Alliance for a Healthier Generation was founded by the American Heart Association and the Clinton Foundation as a response to the growing rate of childhood obesity. The organization’s goal is to create systemic change, change that is not isolated to one home, or community, to one school, industry, or state. The Alliance’s Healthy Schools Program brings many resources to help support schools’ efforts to develop a healthier school environment. Healthy kids have higher attendance rates, higher test scores and behave better in class.
In Sac City, 17 schools are part of the Healthy Schools Program.
