Fundraising Honor Roll

For the third year, I am training for the ING New York City Marathon and leading Team Healthier Generation to raise funds for childhood health.

I grew up eating junk food, but only because I didn't have any direction. By joining Team Healthier Generation and supporting the Alliance for a Healthier Generation, I have the ability to help people eat better - something which I think is my responsibility as a chef.

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.

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’m going to leave transforming a nation to them, but what I am going to do is 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.
