Momentum

Since 2015, St. Vincent’s has offered this after school program in Clay County which addresses adolescent obesity through clinical, nutritional, behavioral, and exercise components. The program began at Wilkinson and Orange Park Junior High, helping change the lives of 128 adolescents in FY16. Momentum even won One Spark’s juried award in the Health & Sciences category in 2015. The program was so successful in its first year, that the schools have incorporated Momentum’s nutrition component into their physical education curriculum, expanding the program’s reach to 1,600 adolescents for FY17!
