Last year I was asked to join the Board of Directors at the LA PALESTRA KIDS Foundation, a 501c3 foundation which was formed to service in preventing obesity and health problems associated with inadequate nutrition and inactivity, due to our roots in preventative medicine and health. LP KIDS was founded to provide childhood health education programs to underserved families and their communities. The mission is simple, improve the quality of children and their families’ lives through education and the integration of exercise, nutrition and socialization. Our hope is to instill widespread education of health, exercise and nutrition in the NYC communities where access to knowledge may be limited & we are doing it through integrative health classes to children and their families in East and West Harlem, as well as Lincoln Square. I am not only honored to be on the board but even more excited to better serve and lead those children and families I know I can have direct impact on here in NYC.
This year, as part of our fundraising campaign, Greg Peters (Board Member and Founder of TRN http://www.trnme.com/) and I are training a group of men to run their first NYC Half Marathon implementing our educational tools at LPKids to help these men finish their first half marathon and race for a great cause. All these men will also be running in their new favorite gear from www.rhoneapparel.com as well.
Thanks for all the support and please consider giving to LP Kids,
