BOCA RATON, FL, Oct 12, 2010 – Seven-time Olympic Medalist Shannon Miller will be on Lifetime Television’s Balancing Act October 25 from 7:00-8:00 AM to promote childhood obesity awareness through the efforts of Shannon Miller Lifestyle, Healthy Weight Commitment Foundation, and ‘nPLAY.
Miller states, “All kids yearn for a sense of control over their lives. So kids naturally feel energized when they realize that they have personal control over their eating and exercise habits. I look to the Healthy Weight Commitment Foundation and ‘nPLAY as a resource to teach children these basics of healthy living—calories in and calories out—and inspire them to live in this balanced way.”
Shannon Miller Lifestyle is a Healthy Weight Commitment Foundation Partner (http://www.healthyweightcommit.org/supporters/partners/), and Miller is on the Board of Governors for ‘nPLAY (http://nplayfoundation.org/index.php/athletes/gymnastics/), along with other athlete supporters such as Grant Hill, Jennie Finch, Evander Holyfield, Summer Sanders, and Johnny Weir.
