BENEFITING: THE BOYS AND GIRLS CLUBS OF SAN DIEGUITO
EVENT DATE: Jul 31, 2011
I am running my second half marathon (this time on the challenging hills of SF) and I need your help! I am running this race to make a point: that childhood obesity is a problem but it is a problem we can prevent. Through example and education, we can help children in leading healthy lifestyles. How can you help? You can help me achieve the following goals:
1. My first goal is to lead by example and motivate others to eat healthy and exercise. You can help by considering running this race (insert huge smile here), going on runs with me at any point in my training, and/or cheering me on on race day. I appreciate any help I will get and to show my appreciation I will feed you healthy brownies...promise that they exist!
2. My second goal is to help Amanda Curry, founder of The Good Food Factory, with an awesome project. Amanda teaches children that healthy food is fun! (If you don't believe me, check out Amanda in action)
Remember sitting at the dinner table in front of a plate full of veggies while your parents starred at you?
Remember how much you disliked them for not letting you go watch TV until you ate them all?
Amanda makes eating veggies fun for kids! Her newest project that will be supported through your generous donations will provide the kids of the Boys and Girls Clubs of San Dieguito with the first ever Good Food Factory Cookbook Coloring Book. Each Cookbook Coloring Book will feature healthy recipes, cooking tips and information on healthy eating, and tons of fun coloring pages, too! The Cookbook Coloring Books will be donated to every child that takes a healthy kids cooking class from Amanda at the Boys and Girls Club at The Center for Healthy Lifestyle. Please please consider supporting this project as it will bring us that much closer to promoting health in the youngest members of our community.
$1000 will fund over 500 FREE Cookbook Coloring Books!
Thanks for your help guys :)
