Amid media reports this week that 40% of young people in Northern Ireland are now obese, an awards ceremony in Portadown has shown how a key initiative encourages children to lead a healthy lifestyle. The Portadown Gets Active Youth Programme which ran over the summer was funded by the McClay Foundation and supported by Craigavon-headquartered Almac, and delivered through the Children and Young People�"s Strategic Partnership (CYPSP) with partners Children in Northern Ireland, Pathway Activities NI, Oasis Youth Project, Education Authority, Public Health Agency and Brakes. 80 young people who completed the programme were presented with Open College Network (OCN) accredited awards at a special celebration event.
