Welcome to My Fundraising Page!
Did you know?! Nearly 1 in 3 kids in the U.S. is overweight or obese, and our current generation could become the first in American history to live shorter lives than their parents?
We all can play a part in creating a healthier nation for our youth. I’ve decided to serve as a role model by being a person who is active and striving to push my body to be as healthy as possible. And to be the role model I need to be, I have joined Team Healthier Generation, an endurance training and fundraising program of the Alliance for a Healthier Generation. The Alliance's goal is that all kids grow up in places that help them lead healthy lives. We can achieve this goal by focusing on proven processes and expertise in changing systems to make sure that the places where kids spend their time empower them to make healthy choices.
On October 21-22, I will be running my first ever 10K! I will be participating in the 2017 Marine Corps Marathon & 10K event as a member of this exclusive program dedicated to creating healthy environments by improving nutrition and physical activity opportunities available to young people in schools, communities and the consumer marketplace. I am honored and excited to be participating in this world renowned event all while raising the much needed funding to support the mission of the Alliance for a Healthier Generation.
My personal fundraising goal is $500 and you can help me cross the finish line by making a tax deductible donation to the Alliance. Your financial support will turn my efforts into research and programs to develop healthier opportunities during childhood.
As a teacher, I can attest to the importance of modeling and creating healthy habits in children. I appreciate any and all support! Thank you!
