Rachel Wong's Fundraiser:

Rachel Takes on a Marathon

BENEFITING: AMERICAN RUNNING ASSOCIATION

EVENT: RUN the Boston Marathon® with AMAA

EVENT DATE: Apr 15, 2013

Rachel Wong

THE STORY:

My name is Rachel, I'm a sophomore, a Quincy penguin, and an East Asian Studies concentrator. I'm raising money to run the 2013 Boston Marathon and to help with the fight against youth obesity in the U.S. by teaming up with the American Medical Athletic Association (AMAA).

Over 30 percent of children ages six to 11 are overweight, 15 percent are obese, and three out of five children ages nine to 13 don't participate in sports or other coached physical activities outside of school. These overweight and unfit children are more likely to remain unhealthy in adulthood and have an increased risk for developing life-threatening medical conditions such as Type II diabetes and heart disease.

Donations made on my behalf will help me reach my goal of running the Boston Marathon and will allow AMAA and the American Running Association (its sister organization) to support their joint "Youth Fitness Programs Campaign." The campaign's central national event is the "National Run A Mile Days" which takes place the first week in May each year. Training materials and onsite incentives are provided to all participants.

Please consider donating. Any amount will help me get closer to my goal of running the Boston Marathon and will support these two non-profit organizations as they work hard to deter youth obesity.
