Inspired by Catalyst's activism event at the 2011 Summit, Arizona in Action built a giant bar graph in the town of Goodyear, AZ, to demonstrate Arizona's rising obesity rates through the last 30 years. The event was part of Goodyear in Action Day. The graph was partially filled with empty soda cans, to demonstrate soda's role in the skyrocketing obesity rates.
Arizona in Action promotes and motivates people of all ages in Arizona towards healthier lifestyles. You can find out more about them at arizonainaction.org. We think they are pretty cool. Check out the pics from their event below!
The cans for the bar graph were donated by 8 year-old Jayden. Jayden collects cans for his charity that helps sick kids. More info can be found at jjsgiantheart.com.
