If there is one thing you should know about me is my love for kids. I have been passionate about the well being of children as far back as I can remember. The love for kids goes beyond their physical health. Mental health is paramount to success. We have all experienced lows in our life. As adults it is difficult to navigate life at times. Imagine those same obstacles (or worse) for a child. Suicide rates are at an all time high for our youth. If I can be just a small part in changing that I am going to do everything in my power to do that.
I have been involved with the 100 Mile Club for 10 years now. I have been a coach and I currently sit on the Board. The program is so much more than just getting kids outside for some physical activity. It is more than running. It is strengthening mental health. Yes, our kiddos participating in our program become healthier physically. Yay! We absolutely love that as it is so important! But what you don’t see on the outside (well you may see those big smiles) is what it does for them mentally. I have personally watched it save a child’s life. Everyone needs an outlet when they are having difficulty. Not everyone can afford a gym membership or team sports. $10 supports one child in the program for an entire year We never want money to be the reason our kids are not moving!! For some, $10 means food on their table. The kids NEED YOUR SUPPORT!! Your donation will give children an opportunity to participate in our program. You don’t have to donate 100’s of dollars (although it would be awesome, LOL!) Make 2019 about helping others. Our youth are our future. Please help them be the very best version of themselves. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. ~ Much Love and Gratitude ~ Traci
