Dumas, Texas - The YMCA in Dumas  is one of only a handful around America chosen to take part in a special effort. 

It's called Activate America and aims to stop the growing epidemic of obesity... It's a movement started by the national YMCA.

The Y's Brenda Elzner says, "It's hard to do something big unless you're in every little town. So they've taken a few YMCAs and kind of experimented with how do we incorporate activity into each community and how can each community affect the health and well-being of that community."

Some of the Activate America programs include reaching out to those who wouldn't usually go to the gym, working with high school athletes and those with disabilities.
