Being physically active has changed my life significantly....let exercise change yours!  See more
Sue Farmer

THE STORY:

Why I am raising money for Charities Challenge and WHY am I  running 26.2 hard miles in Maui for Charities Challenge? Because Charities Challenge's mission is to improve the quality of lives for individuals challenge by health concerns.  My family has been affected by numerous health issues. I am inspired to run and be active because those individuals are limited in their activities by health concerns.

My family has history of heart problems and alzheimers as well as lifestyle health concerns such as obesity and smoking.  I have never considered myself athletic until 2 years ago when I decided that some changes needed to be made.  I didn't have energy, coming home and napping daily, eating junk because I thought it tasted good.  I started setting goals for myself and I was losing weight and feeling better overall.  I have lost 25lbs, I see definition in muscle and I sleep better.  It's been alot of hard work and I know that if I had some health concerns I would not be able to do some of the things I do.  I started running about a year ago and completed a couple of 5ks along the way.  Last summer I decided that I needed to push myself out of my comfort zone and I completed a 10 mile run(in thunder, lightning and rain) and completed my first 1/2 marathon in August.  Recently I was approached by fellow Charities Challenge Ambassador Chris Hess-Withbroe about this awesome organization and asked if I would like to join her in fundraising and running my first marathon in Maui in January.

I'm running to honor my mother who has had major artery blockage, my grandmother who died of alzheimers and my grandfather who died of heart failure.  I also put in the hard work for my son, Brandon who is my reason for living.

Please help me spread the word about exercise.....the CHEAPEST Rx you can find!

Charities Challenge Improves Health/Fitness, Reduces Health Risks, and Enhances Disease Management via Goal-oriented RxExercise Training Programs, Engaging Events & Active Community Partnerships...Because there is NO CURE for all the ills associated with lack of exercise…except RxExercise!

Thank you all for your support!
