Together Counts™ Program

Together Counts™ is a nationwide program inspiring active and healthy living. Together Counts was started by The Healthy Weight Commitment Foundation, a broad-based not-for-profit organization whose mission is to help reduce obesity, especially
childhood obesity, by encouraging positive and permanent lifestyle
changes among school-aged children and their families.

The Foundation develops and implements innovative and collaborative educational, marketplace and community solutions with its coalition of 300 corporate and not-for-profit partners. Together, they promote ways to help people achieve a healthy weight through resources developed for both families and schools.
