BENEFITING: ALLIANCE FOR A HEALTHIER GENERATION
EVENT DATE: Sep 24, 2011
Child obesity is growing at an alarming rate in our nation. In fact, one in three children in the United States is obese or overweight. Child obesity can lead to type 2 diabetes, a higher risk for asthma, and an increased risk of heart failure. Children often play video games and watch television instead of playing basketball or soccer. Junk foods and fast foods are becoming our primary source of nutrition in this country. This must be limited or the consequences can be dire. Join us to help raise money by participating in our 5K run/walk event in mid September. The money earned from this event will be donated to the Alliance for a Healthier Generation. The foundation has the belief that a healthier tomorrow is a brighter future. The money earned from this event will ensure that elementary schools throughout the nation provide healthy food items during lunch and in vending machines. Furthermore, organizations are spawning throughout the nation with this funding. These organizations motivate and inspire children to lead a healthier life style. Please join us in this opportunity to help contribute to a solution to one of the major problems in this nation.
