I am running for an incredible cause, to EMPOWER kids to have FUN through fitness! Most of us struggle with finding fitness as something that excites us, that is why I support this charity because it helps kids look at fitness in a FUN way!!! Raising money for this charity will help me stay focused on training and make each run more meaningful, knowing that I am giving back to the St Louis community!!! Please help me in raising $300.00 before April 15, and come and watch our relay team run in the GO marathon!!!!!!

GO! St. Louis Team for Kids is the official charity team for GO! St. Louis. This exciting new team will help you train for a race at the 2012 GO! St. Louis Marathon & Family Fitness Weekend®, while raising funds to help us in our mission to fight the raising rate of youth obesity.
We created this new team out of an increased interest in expanding our local youth fitness initiatives at a time of crisis for many young children, who continue to fight a lack of physical exercise and ultimately an obesity problem than can lead to a lifetime of health issues. We have expanded our youth programs over the years to reach at-risk children – more than 20,000 in 2011, but we need to do more, and we need your help.
