We at the Living Closer Foundation wish to extend our heartfelt thanks to EVERYONE who attended our Skippy the Super Roo Red Carpet Premiere event on April 24th at the AMC Arapahoe Crossings theater.
We were thrilled to have so many of our friends and community members out to walk the red carpet, have their photo taken with Skippy the Super Roo, and celebrate the world premiere of our amazing new film THE BIG RACE: Pickles and Skippy the Super Roo.
A big thanks goes out to Senator Jack Tate, State Representative Rhonda Fields, Dr. Richard Johnson, and Damon Gameau for their special appearance at our event and for contributing their important messages in support of children's health in our state and around the world. We are so very proud of all the amazing kids, parents, teachers, and community members that have helped to make our ShFat That! message come alive in our schools, on stage, at the Capitol, and in our new film starring Skippy the Super Roo.
Our ShFat That! initiative is spreading the word that too much sugar in our diets is harmful, especially for kids. Our goal is to raise awareness that 1 in 3 children are in danger of developing type 2 diabetes in their lifetime and 1 in 4 already struggle with being overweight or obese.
We are encouraging kids everywhere to learn about the dangers of added sugar in the foods and drinks they consume and to say "ShFat That!" to products that are high in sugar and fat.We couldn't do it without all of you! Thank you again for coming out on Sunday and supporting our talented actors and actresses and our ShFat That! movement.
Spread the word!
And stay tuned for a link to view and share the Skippy the Super Roo film at home!
