Since retiring from competition, the two-time U.S. Olympic Hall of Fame inductee has immersed herself in the community, advocating for women’s health, wellness and empowerment, and contributing her time to several charities, including Wolfson’s Children’s Hospital, St. Jude, the Special Olympics, March of Dimes, Drug Free Youth, the Make-A-Wish Foundation and the Pediatric Aids Foundation.
Of all these causes, Miller seems to have a special interest in women’s body image and America’s overall battle with weight. In 2007, she launched the Shannon Miller Foundation, which is committed to fighting childhood obesity through offering children the opportunity to be physically active and gain greater nutritional knowledge. And, this July, Miller will debut www.ShannonMillerLifestyle.com, a website dedicated to health and fitness for women. Here you can find inspiration, useful information as well as an unveiling of Miller’s new products: a Fit Pregnancy DVD, a Body After Baby DVD, and a series of Fitness To Go books for women.
