Stuff About Me:

Hello family and friends!

Please join me on my journey in promoting a healthy lifestyle for our youth. This October I will be running the Chicago Marathon while supporting Action For Healthy Kids, a non-profit organization established in 2002 that addresses the childhood obesity epidemic by transforming schools into healthier places.

It is my honor to support this charity because I believe that physical vitality directly relates to mental stability and confidence. Running to promote a healthy lifestyle and to fight childhood obesity is a perfect complement. I want future generations of children to be healthy and succeed in school and in life. 

Childhood obesity is a major problem that needs to be addressed. More than 30% of American children are obese or overweight. This is triple the number than in 1980. Action for Healthy Kids is helping make a difference through several great programs. Check out their website www.actionforhealthykids.org to learn more. 

With a donation of any size you can help them continue to impact the lives of our kids and get even more of these great programs in local schools. 

Thanks for your support!
