(INDIANAPOLIS) - One of the state's most celebrated athletes is partnering with his children's hospital to launch a new initiative targeting childhood obesity.

Peyton Manning and the Peyton Manning Children's Hospital at St. Vincent announced a new school health and wellness campaign Monday to fight the growing problem.

Medical director Dr. Joanne Hilden says "Project 18" provides Indiana elementary schools with an 18-week health and wellness curriculum.

The initiative is designed to teach 3rd to 5th-graders about making healthy choices and getting enough exercise.
