BENEFITING: YAKIMA GREENWAY FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Oct 07, 2012
Well I'm doing what I've said I'd NEVER do: I've committed to training for my first FULL marathon!! My 60 year old rock star mother is joining me (actually it was her idea) and we've chosen the Portland Marathon on October 7, 2012. To commemorate this exciting event, my goal is to raise $10000 for the KIDDIN' AROUND PROGRAM through the Yakima Greenway Foundation. This program provides free of charge or low cost activities in the spring through fall for the children of Yakima with the aim of promoting a love of physical activity for life. Healthy habits begin early! The hope is that through this effort we can help prevent and reverse CHILDHOOD OBESITY in the Yakima Valley. Programs such as these have a hard time staying funded and I would like to support this wonderful resource so that we can keep it active for years to come! Thanks you so very much for your support!
