BENEFITING: ALLIANCE FOR A HEALTHIER GENERATION
ORGANIZER: ALLIANCE FOR A HEALTHIER GENERATION
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2011
LET’S END CHILDHOOD OBESITY TOGETHER!
On November 6, I will be running in the ING NYC Marathon as a part of Team Healthier Generation - the first marathon team the Alliance has ever had! I have personally committed to raising $10,000 for the Alliance for a Healthier Generation in an effort to address one of the nation’s leading public health threats—childhood obesity.
In case you didn’t know…
- Nearly 1 in 3 kids is already overweight or obese.
- Today’s generation could be the first to live shorter lives than their parents.
- Health experts predict that the medical cost of obesity on the healthcare system will reach $1 trillion annually by 2030.
By pledging funds on my behalf or joining the cause as a fundraiser, YOU become a part of the solution in the fight against the childhood obesity epidemic.
Please help support Team Healthier Generation by making a donation on my Crowdrise page or by making a general donation in support of the entire Team Healthier Generation.
Together, we can end childhood obesity and empower kids to live healthier lives.
Thank you for your support!
