Let's Get Physical
Physical activity is vital for health and well-being. There is increasing concern about overweight and obesity worldwide, and while there are many factors involved, the fundamental cause in most cases is an imbalance between calories consumed and calories expended. Our goal is to help people around the globe understand the importance of a sensible, balanced diet and the health benefits from increasing their levels of physical activity.
Helping People Worldwide
As a Company, we have a long history of supporting active, healthy lifestyle programs for our associates and our communities. From sponsoring major sporting events, to encouraging community soccer and athletic programs, to workplace wellness programs, we continue to foster physical activity and active, healthy lifestyles worldwide. For instance, in the United States, we are a founding partner of “Exercise is Medicine,” a program designed to encourage the medical community to advise patients on the importance of physical activity. We are also a founding member of the Healthy Weight Commitment Foundation, a national, multi-year initiative to help reduce obesity—especially childhood obesity—by promoting and providing tools to help people achieve a healthy weight through energy balance.

Support for Physical Activity Research
In order to provide greater understanding and insight into barriers to and motivation for engaging in physical activity, we also support physical activity research programs. This has included collaboration with the Boys and Girls Clubs’ “Triple Play” program.
