John Rex Endowment 2016 Progress Report

The John Rex Endowment 2016 Progress Report is a glimpse of the foundation’s impact on the Wake County community over the past 15 years. This impact includes supporting the NLI's Preventing Obesity by Design in Wake County (POD Wake Co.) program. The purpose of POD Wake Co. is to address the obesity epidemic in young children attending childcare by creating a multidisciplinary intervention to transform childcare outdoor learning environments (OLEs) into active, productive best practice demonstration sites
