EVENT: 2012 ING New York City Marathon - $1 Mil a Mile

EVENT DATE: Nov 04, 2012

Ken Davidoff

THE STORY:

Well, I trained for the 2012 New York City Marathon, but you know what happened: They thankfully canceled it.

I have every intention of running in next year's race, and in the meantime, I'm finishing out my fundraising for a great cause: Change for Kids, an organization that works to develop students and enhance their learning experiences. Please help me raise money for this terrific organization.

100% of funds donated will go towards establishing a brand new Healthy Living program at P.S. 73 in the South Bronx.

Why This Matters:

Today’s children are expected to be the first generation in American history to have a shorter life expectancy than their parents. This has been caused in part by reductions in school physical education programs. Only 3.8% of elementary schools provide the recommended daily physical education to their students, and this deficiency is even more pronounced in the low-income schools we serve.

As a result, child obesity rates have increased across the board, but particularly for children in high-poverty rate schools. Between 2003 and 2007, obesity rates increased 23% for low-income children. The effects of childhood obesity are numerous: from a lifetime of health problems (including Type II Diabetes, hypertension, asthma and heart disease) to emotional and psychological effects, including low self-esteem and depression. Current studies also show that poor eating and inactive lifestyles have a direct effect on academic performance.

Funds earned will initiate additional gym classes, brand new nutrition classes, and structured recess time for 500 students at 2 partner CFK schools. Setting students on the right track to reach their full potential by building the healthy living skills they need to chart their own means of impacting the world.
