THE STORY:

Hello friends and family, 

    I will be running the 2015 Boston Marathon with my brother, Jeremy, for the American Medical Athletic Association, which is raising money to support their Youth Fitness Fund. The fundraising proceeds will support the national RUN A MILE DAYS, which is a program to promote an active lifestyle and deter childhood obesity. Please see below for more information. 

  The Boston Marathon will complete our quest to conquer the Big Five marathons (Chicago, NYC, Berlin, London, and hopefully, Boston). I'm so excited to run the Boston Marathon for charity! The last marathon I completed was in London, and what struck me most was that so many of the runners had raised thousands of dollars to be a part of the event. It was amazing to think about how much that one day impacted so many different charities. I'm excited to be a part of that movement! Thank you for your support!

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.
