Project 18Project 18 was created by Peyton Manning and the doctors and healthcare professionals at Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital at St.Vincent to help fight childhood obesity. In its first year, the program reached students at more than 200 schools across the State of Indiana.

How about kids who didn’t encounter Project 18 a school? What about parents who want to know what they can do to help improve their families’ health? We also developed project18.stvincent.org, a website with all sorts of resources to help kids, parents, and teachers. The program continues to grow, and the site grows right along with it. And it’s all in service of addressing a serious health challenge for our kids. Turns out Peyton Manning’s a pretty good role model.
