Fundraising Honor Roll

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 my role will be as an athlete – as 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 for support to become the athlete I want to be.

I have competed in multiple sports from a young age. In this season of my life, the challenge I have chosen is to complete the Antelope Island Endurance Trail Ride on April 8, 2017. In this event, my partner for physical activity is one of my horses, Nena. She's a 15 year-old Arabian mare. She and I will complete a 25 mile trail ride. The goal of this ride is to finish with a horse that is fit to continue. Both of us will complete systematic training to prepare for the challenge. I will supplement my riding with cardiovascular, strength and flexibility training. In order to give her a break on the trail, at times, I will run by her side. Her health and fitness will be monitored throughout the ride and we can only continue if she is fit. 

As a professional, I have been involved in the field of children's health and fitness for more than 25 years. I have proudly served the Alliance for a Healthier Generation as a National Physical Education and Physical Activity Advisor for 10 years. I am committed to helping schools provide positive physical activity experiences for all children. Sometimes, kids are attracted to out of the box physical activities. I will use this endurance ride to exemplify that physical activity doesn't have to be common to be fun and effective. 

Team Healthier Generation is the endurance training and fundraising program of the Alliance for a Healthier Generation. And the Alliance’s goal is to reduce the prevalence of childhood obesity and empower kids to develop lifelong, healthy habits.

I dedicate my training to raising awareness and much needed funds to support their mission to give our kids their brightest future. Join the movement with me. Your financial support will turn my efforts into research and programs to develop healthier opportunities during childhood.

Thank you for your support.
