Life Inspired is a benefit for the Obesity Prevention Foundation (OPF) with a focus on fighting the obesity problem in a very innocent and vulnerable population; the children. The Obesity Prevention Foundation was established by the surgeons of Western Bariatric Institute to bring awareness of the growing number of children and adolescents affected by this debilitating disease. The Foundation Board of Director's has chosen Urban Roots Classroom Gardens as one of the beneficiaries of the 2011 event. Additionally, The OPF Wellness Scholarship Program will provide a scholarship to a child, age 12-18, who will be given a 12 week medically-supervised weight loss journey from OPF partner, iMetabolic Medical weight loss center. This child will become the 2011 Youth Ambassador for OPF and will be a introduced at the event.
