Y Fliker Across America Epic Journey Raises Awareness About Childhood Obesity
Date:9/19/2013

Torrance, CA (PRWEB) September 19, 2013

An international team of adventurists are on the last leg of their epic cross country journey, Y Fliker Across America raising awareness about childhood obesity and demonstrating that exercise can be fun. But before they cross that finish line in New York, they are calling on consumers to help the kids in their own community. The Y Fliker Across America team hopes to raise enough money to provide 1,000 Y Fliker scooters to elementary school PE programs across the country. To donate or to register a school for a chance to win the scooters, go to http://www.YFlikerAcrossAmerica.com A $50 donation puts one Y Fliker in a school. Yvolution, maker of the Y Fliker, has committed to donating the first 300 scooters.

Nationwide, obesity now affects 17% of all children and adolescents - triple the rate from just one generation ago. These stats are among the reasons for President Obama proclaiming September as National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month and encouraging Americans to learn about and engage in activities that promote healthy eating and greater physical activity.

“This has been an exhausting yet exhilarating journey. All across the country, we met people who are passionate about finding new and fun ways to get kids active and reverse the obesity trend in their community,” said Waneska Valois, Y Fliker Across America team leader.

Using only a Y Fliker, a self-propelled three-wheeled scooter, the team is Flikering 3,282 miles across 17 states. They had to Fliker almost two marathons a day to finish their journey in three months. Over the past three months, the team Flikered through small towns and large cities. They endured extreme heat warnings in Death Valley and tornadoes in Colorado. They rode under the moonlight in Iowa and braved rush hour traffic in Chicago.
