Teaching Kids to KO Obesity
In celebration of National Health and Fitness Month, we introduce you to restaurant owner Dimitrios Verteouris. After losing 100 pounds in 6 months through boxing and a healthy eating regimen, he decided to start fighting the battle against childhood obesity with the help of Dr. Wendy Scinta. Scinta is a team member of the anti-obesity boxing initiative called Knockout Obesity. KO Obesity hosted a boxing event for kids aged 6-9 to introduce them to the sport and encourage kids to foster healthy eating habits and regular exercise. Among the many boxing professionals who attended the event were former World Boxing Association's welterweight champion Paul Malignaggi and three time NY Golden Glove winner Gary Stark, Jr.
