In 2003 Healthy Lifestars began its fight against childhood obesity by developing Greater Phoenix as its first LifeStar Community
We currently provide The LifeStar Challenge to schools within several school districts (with focus on Title 1 sites), Boys and Girls Clubs, The Salvation Army and other youth-serving organizations in our efforts to reach underserved children. We are in Phoenix, Scottsdale, Mesa, Chandler, Glendale, Estrella Mountain, Maryvale, Apache Junction and Casa Grande.
Each year we have a community-wide celebratory event for all of the children who have met their LifeStar Challenge goals and have become LifeStars. Past events have included the Diamondbacks, the Phoenix Suns, the Phoenix Zoo, the Penske Auto Racing Museum, the ASU Baseball team and the Golf Club at Desert Highlands. These events have been highly motivational and fun for the kids and their families.
