Discover CATCH Gets a Second Round of Funding

The Florida Blue Foundation granted our Discover CATCH: Early Childhood program almost $100,000 for a second round of training at JCCs in Florida, a tribute to the program’s effectiveness. It was one of only four programs to receive additional funding. “We will be able to train staff members from two more JCCs in Florida, Adolph & Rose Levis JCC and JCC Suncoast,” said Steve Becker, vice-president, health and wellness services, “and we will also be able to reach out to underserved segments of the community, part of our goal all along.” Discover CATCH is a JCC Association program for preschool-aged children to teach them healthy eating and activity habits. It is available in 20 JCCs across the country, and the hope is to bring Discover CATCH to 12 more in the coming year as part of an initiative to reduce the rate of childhood obesity in the U.S.
