For years we have worked with The Oliver Foundation, a Houston-based 501(c)(3) non-profit operating foundation dedicated to the prevention of childhood obesity. In fact, they were integral players in the creation and development of our OWG Shorts! So we were thrilled to recently hear about an incredibly talented and impressive young lady on their teen board, who is working hard to fight childhood obesity.
Bradlee Few is a rising senior at The Kinkaid School in Houston, Texas. Bradlee is fully engaged in academics, sports, service, and she is an avid writer. She has enhanced her academic experience by studying abroad in France and China. She is a third year member of both varsity cross country and track & field. For the 2014 season she was selected by her cross country and track coaches as a team captain. Bradlee has served as an Admissions Ambassador for the last two years representing Kinkaid to prospective families through tours and open houses; and she will also begin serving as a Deans Ambassador in the fall. She is the president and co-founder of the Bite of Kinkaid Club, a foodie club focused on exposing its members to world cultures through cooking, eating, and service. Bradlee is also a member of several organizations including National Charity League where she most recently was the President of the Houston Memorial Chapter class of 2016, The Oliver Foundation Teen Board focused on ending childhood obesity, the Nordstrom Fashion Board and Jack and Jill of America, Houston Chapter. Bradlee has also recently received the Girl Scout Gold Award for her work fighting childhood obesity.
Read this inspiring article to see how Bradlee was led to fight childhood obesity head on, watch her video called Tipping the Scale and stay tuned for the launch of her website to coincide with the video all with the hopes of advocating, informing and helping people to become aware of childhood obesity and what they can do to stop it.
We support your tremendous efforts Bradlee and we look forward to following you along the way!
