The rate of childhood obesity is rapidly rising throughout Oklahoma. People have developed inactive lifestyles and unhealthy, yet convenient eating habits. This includes quick meals which typically have low nutritional value and are high in calories. We believe we can make an early impact in the wellness of children through the powerful promotion of physical activity, nutrition and healthy lifestyles.
• 1 in 5 children in the U.S. are overweight. • The percentage of children and adolescents who are defined as overweight has nearly tripled since the early 1970s. • Oklahoma ranks 48th in national state health rankings. • Approximately 17% of children and adolescents in the U.S. ages 2-19 are obese. • Children from minority groups have an even higher prevalence of obesity. • Children with obesity, ages 10-13, are reported to have a 70% likelihood of obesity persisting into adult years. • Oklahomans rank 50th in the U.S. in eating fruits and vegetables.
One method to combat childhood obesity is to improve the diet and exercise levels of the entire family. The Y offers programs that create a healthy culture for children. Children are generally not interested in structured exercise programs; they prefer to play freely. In order to set a regular exercise program for kids, we implement education and provide motivation so that kids can establish a healthy routine. Here at the Y, we focus on the benefits of living healthier, on the inside and out, for better development of the spirit, mind and body. The Y encourages kids to commit to keeping their body and mind active throughout the year. We can protect the future of our children by protecting their health now.
• 15 schools were visited to promote water safety and swim lessons. • 28 families, 66 children total were blessed with our Angel Tree program. Several families shared that they would not have had Christmas if it were not for our program. • Changed this year’s scholarship award process by introducing a sliding scale model similar to the model used by DHS. • $80,000 was raised in the 2011 community giving campaign while we provided $450,000 in financial assistance to families and individuals.
Youth Development accomplishments • 672 children were served through Y School-Age Childcare. • 25 young people were involved in Teen Summer Camp. • 208 school-aged children were involved in Camp Friendship Summer Camp. • 229 children were involved in youth sports (soccer, basketball, tee-ball and Tae Kwon Do). • 1,400+ kids were taught how to swim. • OU students were given the opportunity to complete volunteer hours and finish their degrees. • Added a basketball league for advanced youth players.
Financial assistance keeps the Y available for kids and families who need us most. We count on the generosity of our members and community to help people of all ages and from all walks of life be more healthy, confident, connected and secure. When you give to the Y, your gift really matters.
a year of social responsibility accomplishments

Thea Walters was sad and depressed because her husband was being deployed.

By participating in Y programs she lost 30 pounds, made friends, and stayed positive during his deployment. Thea and Liam Walters 25
