In just five years, HWCF members have removed 6.4 trillion calories from the marketplace, representing a 78 calorie reduction per person, per day. The coalition brings together over 300 retailers, food and beverage manufacturers, restaurants, sporting goods and insurance companies, trade associations, nongovernmental organizations, and professional sports organizations. HWCF promotes ways to help people achieve a healthy weight through energy balance—calories in and calories out.
Special Olympics recently was featured in the Together Counts campaign that focuses on families and schools.
