Project Teen Health (PTH) is a childhood obesity prevention program developed and operated by Community Action Partnership of San Luis Obispo County, Inc. (CAPSLO). The mission of Project Teen Health is to reduce and prevent adolescent obesity by providing research-supported, innovative, culturally sensitive, and youth-driven programs. PTH serves youth at Arroyo Grande High School, Nipomo High School, Paso Robles High School and Santa Maria High School providing a variety of no-cost programs.
Proceeds from the CHC Superhero 5k Run will provide scholarships for students in need who wish to participate in the program. Funds will cover the cost of gym memberships, athletic shoes, and field trips. The high school-based program offers after-school fitness classes, individual nutrition counseling, an on-campus nutrition club, and an annual health fair.
