BENEFITING: Action for Healthy Kids, Inc.
ORGANIZER: Action for Healthy Kids, Inc.
EVENT DATE: Oct 12, 2014
This is my fundraiser. The Chicago Marathon will be my 7th 26.2 mile race, but it will be the most special one because I'm raising money for Action for Heathy Kids.
If it wasn't for running, I'd still be an obese, drug-addled slob, so I understand the importance early health education. Kids need to move. Especially American kids, who are pretty much raised on Big Macs and video games.
Getting out of the house and moving leads to a lifetime of good habits. It's true. Look it up.
Anyway, please donate as much money as you can. Even if you're poor.

Working together, we’re giving kids the keys to health and academic success by meeting them where they are – in the classroom, in the cafeteria and on the playground – with fun physical activity and nutrition programs that make it possible for them to eat nutritiously and play every day.
