EVENT DATE: Oct 08, 2017
Hello wonderful friends,
Most of you know I've recently picked up race running, I'm excited to announce that I will be running the 2017 Chicago Marathon for Common Threads this year! Becoming a dietitan has ignited my passion to make sound nutiriton education accessible to everyone, especially kids!
The mission of Common Threads is to educate children on nutrition and well-being. Our vision is to prevent obesity, and our programs empower children to cook and eat healthy.
Team Common Threads will be running the Bank of America 2017 Chicago Marathon and raising money to help teach Chicago's elementary schools students and their families’ nutrition education and cooking skills to fight childhood obesity and promote a culture of health.
Food is an essential part of our health. Everyone deserves to learn more about it and get their hands a little dirty in the process! This will be my very first full marathon. I'm crazy nervous and super excited at the same time. I'd love for you to partner with me to support this wonderful organization as I train for this journey to the finish line!
