KC Chiefs Sports Lab

Since the 1970s, the percentage of overweight children has tripled in the United States. Today, one out of five children is overweight or obese in our community. Recent studies have found that students with healthier lifestyles actually perform better academically. The Kansas City Chiefs have created a unique way of educating young people about the positive benefits of leading healthier, happier lives to help reverse these trends.
