Hello fellow friends and readers.
As you know, for the past 18 weeks I have been training hard to run in the Chicago Marathon. And while I registered independently, I decided to go ahead and sign up to help a charity. I chose Action For Healthy Kids.
You can read more about this cause in my blog I did a couple months ago…here.
As a refresher…
Action for Healthy Kids dedicates itself to developing, in children, lifelong habits necessary to promote health and learning. Their primary focus is the epidemic of childhood obesity, undernourishment and physical inactivity found in today’s children here in the United States. This organization partners with dedicated volunteers – teachers, students, moms, dads, school wellness experts and more – to create healthful school changes. Action for Healthy Kids is giving kids the keys to health and academic success by meeting them in the classroom, the cafeteria and on the playground, dishing out fun physical activity and nutrition lessons and changes that will help foster in nutritious eating habits and active play every day.
It’s a fantastic cause…as most children today spend so much time parked in front of a television, a game console, a tablet, a computer, etc. Exercise and activity fall to the wayside.
In TWO days I will be running the Chicago Marathon…so this is one final push for donations. No amount is too small. And every little bit helps.

Thank you so much for all your support as I’ve been working toward these 26.2 miles. You will all be with me on that course on Sunday.
