ASGE Runners Dashing to the Finish Line

BENEFITING: Marathon Kids, Inc.
A balanced life includes academic and social growth but health is just as important. When students eat right and get plenty of physical activity they learn better and learn more. Our school, Ambassador School of Global Education, is located in the Pico Union/ Koreatown corridor in Los Angeles, CA. It is a densely populated city with limited parks and organized sports for our students to participate in. The minutes we provide in physical education is a start but they aren't enough. For the past two school years we have provided an after school running club for our students and parents to participate in two days a week after school. It has proven successful in many areas of that balanced life we want all kids to have. Students are more motivated to come to school, have started making healthier eating choices, are drinking more water, some have lost weight and many are being recognized for additional academic achievements. Some of our running club participants have participated in local 5Ks and 10Ks and some have even placed in their age group. We want to continue these activities and successes. We'd like to continue our running club this next 2017-2018 school year and sponsor 100 of our Kinder through 5th grade students. For this we ask for your generous support. Any little bit will help and if we meet our goal, ASGE will be able to continue our running club this school year. We appreciate your support, happy running to you all!
