Well, I don't know if it is going to be 'riveting' but hopefully it will be interesting enough to compel you give to a great fund. About a year ago I started a new triathlon race series, a new triathlon production company in hopes of creating a venue that could be accessible around the country to all athletes, new and thriving and to future athletes...that meant the Mom, Dad and the Kids! I wanted to share my passion and hobby of triathlons with my community and create races that the entire family could attend and take part in. The first year is this year, 2014, and my charitiy is an education center in the small town that is hosting the race, but my ultimate goal, in future races is to give to the Action for Healthy Kids. So to make up for this year, I'm running the Chicago Marathon and raising money myself, for this amazing charity, with an amazing goal. I hope you join me!
30+ years ago (not giving away my age completely) when I was a kid, my brother and sister and I couldn't wait to get outside and play with our friends. Cable TV didn't exist and TV shows were Happy Days, Laverne & Shirley, Welcome Back Cotter, Sanford & Sons, and the like, all of which my Dad was sure we had seen every episode once, so watching more TV was frowned upon. But we didn't really mind, we'd rather be riding our bikes, climbing trees, playing Ghost in the Graveyard after dinner anyway. But today, things are vastly different. Safety is more of an issue, at least the media would have us think so, technology is admittedly, very cool and kids love to play those video games. (we had to walk to L'Peach to play those .25 cents per game) So how can we get kids to enjoy playing outside as much, if not more, than playing the indoor games.
This is where 'Action For Healthy Kids' comes in. It not only works to get kids active, but it educates them on healthy eating habits, good food vs. junk food and gets them the information they need to grow up active and healthy, the way (the older folks) need them to be. They are going to be running the country when I'm 95, so I need to do my part in helping to make kids healthy.
You can do that too! You can help me by donating to this great charity organization. I'm going to do most of the heavy lifting, or running, you could say. The Chicago Marathon in October is my choice of running location and I'm sure I am going to make it a great day, great race. It's a beautiful city and I'm happy to be getting to visit again, and your donation will help make it an even better event
Please give what you can, pass on my link to your friends, your FB page, Twitter feed etc... The more we can help our kids be healthy, active in body and mind, the better potential our future has.
Thank you for your donation!
To your Health!
