THE STORY:

Hello Friends and Family!

I am super excited to be running the 2011 NYC Marathon.  This will be my first marathon and I will be running the marathon for a fantastic organization.  As most of you know, I was an obese child.  In my late teens and early 20's, I made the decision to change my life by losing 120 pounds!   To celebrate this accomplishment, I promised myself that I would run a marathon.  This is the year!  

I hope you will support my effort and Team For Kids.  There is information below regarding this organization but their mission is simple...get kids moving to prevent childhood and adult obesity.  

I would never have been able to lose the weight that I did without the support of my friends and family!  I am asking you once more to dig deep and support ME and this awesome cause!

Love,

John

LET'S GET MORE KIDS RUNNING IN 2011!!

When you donate to or raise funds for NYRR youth services, kids benefit. Childhood obesity is now an epidemic and many children are not getting the daily physical activity they need to lead healthy lives. The funds raised by Team for Kids members support New York Road Runners youth services programs and make a direct difference in children lives by providing:

  • Training for teachers, coaches, field managers, and coordinators, most of whom are volunteers
  • Incentives for children to encourage them to maintain attendance, demonstrate sportsmanship, and strive for and achieve fitness and personal-achievement milestones
  • Entry fees and transportation costs so participants in our programs can compete in races and attend running-related sporting events
  • Resources to establish programs in areas of greatest need.

Team for Kids started with a small group of runners participating in one race. Now, thousands of team members are running and receiving donations from generous contributors worldwide. This powerful outreach directly affects the number of children who benefit from our programs.

If you're running in the 2011 ING NYC Marathon with us, select the JOIN THE TEAM button above and become a fundraiser for Team For Kids. Then, share your page with your friends & family.

By pledging funds to a Team for Kids runner or joining the cause as a fundraiser, YOU are an important part of the solution. Together, we can end childhood obesity within a decade and give more children the gift of running.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
