About The Shannon Miller Foundation: Launched in 2007, The Shannon Miller Foundation is dedicated to fighting childhood obesity. Today, an estimated one third of all children in the United States are overweight, while the occurrence of obesity has more than quadrupled in the last 25 years. This epidemic leads to life-threatening issues such as heart disease, asthma, hypertension and type II diabetes. Shannon works to make a positive impact on children’s health, through education and awareness of the health risks associated with this disease.
