My name is Marci Hargroder, a 22 year old LSU student currently living in Louisiana. I began marathon running a couple years ago and I haven't stopped since! I am going to be competing in the 2014 Bank of America Chicago Marathon as a part of Team Healthy Kids! By donating to the charity Team Healthy Kids, a part of Action for Healthy Kids, you are helping to end childhood obesity! Action for Healthy Kids is a non-profit organization that helps fund schools so that they can be more health conscious and fitness friendly. One out of every 3 children in the United States is overweight or obese. These children are already at risk for many different health compilcations and diseases. The saddest fact is that that this generation may be the first generation to live shorter lives than their parents. If you're wondering how your money is going to help today's youth, here are a few examples: $25 will provide a healthy school breakfast for one month for one child. $50 will help get a gym class fitness equipment for one year. $100 will help a school offer healthy meals for a whole year! $500 will help teens completely transform their wellness center. Help me get to my goal of $1500! Donate today to help make a difference in our youth!
