While Colorado is often described as one of the healthiest and most active states, we are not immune to the growing health crisis of obesity that is affecting both our waistlines and our bottom lines. Currently, Colorado spends $1.6 billion each year treating diseases and conditions related to obesity. The issue is impacting the potential lifespan of our children and it's weighing on our personal lives, our communities, and our work and school environments.
