Fact: United Way of Grayson County's needs assessment in 2009 showed that health and obesity were not just national issues, but local issues too. Three out of Five children are obese. United Way of Grayson County wants to bring awareness to the issue by hosting the Hustle for Health event.

Thank you to community sponsors and CIGNA the title sponsor.

Campaign runs through November. If you'd like to get involved call the United Way of Grayson County at 903-893-1920
