75% of girls with low self-esteem reported engaging in negative activities like cutting, bullying, smoking, drinking, or disordered eating. This compares to 25% of girls with high self-esteem.
Low self-esteem is a thinking disorder in which an individual views him/herself as inadequate, unlovable, and/or incompetent. Once formed, this negative view permeates every thought, producing faulty assumptions and ongoing self-defeating behavior.
So imagine what it’s like for a girl in a classroom. Female students’ achievement in mathematics and science is on par with their male peers along with female students who participate in high level mathematics and science courses at similar rates as their male peers, with the exception of computer science and engineering (NSF, Science & Engineering Indicators, 2016).

Did you know more than 29 million people in the United States have diabetes? This is up from the previous estimate of 26 million in 2010, according to a report released today by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Alarminging so, one in four people with diabetes doesn’t know he or she has it.
Another 86 million adults – more than one in three U.S. adults – have prediabetes, where their blood sugar levels are higher than normal but not high enough to be classified as type 2 diabetes. Without weight loss and moderate physical activity, 15 percent to 30 percent of people with prediabetes will develop type 2 diabetes within five years.
Walk for your health. Walk for a cure. Walk for prevention. Your life matters.
