R einvent U Empower Maryland is a nonprofit organization committed to reversing the epidemic of childhood obesity by aggressively educating children/youth in Maryland’s underserved community in the areas of proper physical fitness and nutrition. Today, 12.5 million children are overweight in the United States. Reinvent U Empower Maryland will offer fun, organized, and innovative programs to children/youth who are obese and of normal weight in an effort to put them on the path to healthier living for the future. Reinvent U Empower Maryland will partner with local, federal and state programs on policy and goal setting in order to achieve the goal of restoring a sense of health, addressing hunger and well being in the generally under-served populations.
Our vision is to change the upward trend of obesity related diseases like diabetes, high blood pressure and cardiovascular disease. As we work tirelessly to accomplish the mission, the vision for the future is that through innovative programs, we will help children avoid obesity by educating and encouraging healthy habits and behaviors in an effort to build strong minds and bodies for the future. We hope to lower the hunger rate in underserved communities and lower the tremendous economic and medical costs associated with treating these types of obesity related diseases long term. We will strive to provide programs that are of high quality and can be a benchmark for other states looking to implement quality programs like this.
