Team for Kids is a team of volunteers who raise funds for critical services provided by New York Road Runners Youth Programs. These programs combat childhood obesity and empower youth development via running and character-building programs in low-income schools and community centers in New York City, throughout the country, and in South Africa. As an early childhood educator, I know how important it is for children to be physically active throughout the day. Although the children I teach are lucky enough to have ample opportunity to run and play outdoors, I know that there are so many NYC children that do not have the same opportunities. I truly believe in the Team for Kids cause and I hope you will join me in supporting them and the children!
