THE STORY:

I am running the Boston Marathon this year in honor of my father David Yue, who unexpectedly passed away in December 2014. He always talked about how he would have liked to run a marathon one day, and I hope to be able to complete this dream for him.

I would be so grateful for your helping me towards this goal. My dad loved running and was a true inspiration for me in life in general, but also specifically in my love for running. The money raised will to to the American Medical Athletic Association's Youth Fitness Fund, aimed at increasing awareness of childhood obesity and promoting active lifestyles among children. More details on this fund can be found below.

 

BENEFITTING AMAA's YOUTH FITNESS FUND
 

For the 2015 "RUN the Boston Marathon® with AMAA" program, we've partnered with CrowdRise to encourage AMAA members to unite and fundraise for our 2014-2015 Youth Fitness Fund. Just imagine the impact our group of medical and health professionals can have when harnessed to send a fitness message to the community in a fun and compelling way!
 

The Problem:  Over 30 percent of children ages six to 11 are overweight, 15 percent are obese, and three out of five children ages nine to 13 don't participate in sports or other coached physical activities outside of school. These overweight and unfit children are more likely to remain unhealthy in adulthood and have an increased risk for developing life-threatening medical conditions such as Type II diabetes and heart disease.

The Solution: The American Running Association (ARA) and its medical division, the American Medical Athletic Association, are united in efforts to deter youth obesity in the U.S. and promote higher levels of physical activity for school-age youth. Donations made to ARA and AMAA's Youth Fitness Fund will benefit national RUN A MILE DAYS, held annually in May. Funds will support distribution of free materials such as the 8-week walk/run training schedule and posters, as well as help with onsite activities during the week-long event. To learn more about the program, go to www.runamile.org.

The ARA and AMAA also host an annual cross-country championship for middle schoolers through high school students from Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, and the District of Columbia. This event, held in November, is entering its eighth year and has grown to over 500 participants.

Support for the ARA/AMAA Youth Fitness Fund will help expand the organizations' efforts to increase the number of grass-roots youth running events nationwide.

During the early 1980’s, I remember jogging along side your father, David Yue, in the middle of the night through the neighborhoods surround Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore. I think we jogged at night because it was too hot and humid during the daytime. It’s great to hear that you are running in honor of your father. 3 years ago
