NB3 Foundation, Comcast NBCUniversal Release PSA on Childhood Obesity


Notah Begay III’s NB3 Foundation wants to eradicate childhood obesity, and he’s doing it with help from Comcast NBCUniversal.

The foundation released a PSA Wednesday to help champion kids’ health, and relay its message -- to eat healthy and exercise -- to a mass audience. The PSA aired on Feb. 23, in markets that carry Comcast.

“We are thankful to the Golf Channel for producing the PSA for us, and to Comcast for the generous gift of airtime to help bring awareness to the issues of children and youth wellness. This epidemic of obesity is real and the consequences are real,” said NB3 Foundation’s Executive Director Justin Huenemann.

According to the PSA, Native American children have higher overweight and obesity rates than any other racial or ethnic group. “Dreams can get lost if our kids are not healthy,” Begay said in the PSA.
