Athletes for Hope partners with several organizations that advocate for policy change on various global issues. One of these groups is 1,000 Days – an organization dedicated to improving nutrition for women and children in the 1,000 days between a woman’s pregnancy and her child’s second birthday. This important time-frame sets the foundation for all the days that follow in life and could mean the difference between a child living or dying.
We know that nutrition is a necessary key to athletic success and we know that our member athletes care about giving back to causes that benefit the lives of children around the globe. 1,000 Days has been a great match for athletes like Sanya Richards-Ross and Kristine Lily. The duo worked with AFH and 1,000 Days to create PSA’s and give their name to a petition supporting funding for programs that will help address malnutrition in our country and around the world.
Malnutrition robs children of their lives and the opportunity to reach their potential. 1,000 Days is working to change this but they need your help. We invite you to sign the petition to end childhood malnutrition and share it with your fans and friends on your social media outlets. We encourage you to contact us. if you are interested in getting more involved with this wonderful group.
