BENEFITING: TEACH A KID TO FISH
EVENT DATE: Oct 13, 2012
I am a father, philanthropist, runner and believer that the most precious resource we have are our children. Childhood obesity is one of the single greatest threats facing our children today. This generation of children are expected to live a shorter, unhealthier life expectancy than the preceding generation. On October 13, 2012 I ran in the Market to Market 50K Ultra Marathon. I have donated $30 a mile and challenging you to join our drive and donate. Some did not think I had the will to finish but the support, generosity and energy of everyone who has donated or encouraged me helped me accomplish one of the biggest challenges of my life. Knowing that each mile I ran raised awareness of the childhood obesity epidemic and the work that Dr. Karla Lester has dedicated her life to champion was worth each mile I ran.
