Get back under 3 for my next marathon, September 2018; Berlin!
A friend of mine recently brought to my attention "Team for Kids".
This group is part of the New York Road Runners (NYRR) club.
He has run for them in the past. People who run for Team for Kids commit to raising money that is then used to fund school-based and free youth events around the United States to help the youth of America adopt healthy lifestyles through running and fitness.
- Since 2002, Team for Kids has raised more than $57,000,000.
- This money has been used to support programs reaching more than 267,000 children nationwide.
- This funding, in addition to the items listed above, helps pay for training of teachers and coaches, program and practice supplies, and student incentives.
- For most of these kids, running with a NYRR program is their only opportunity to get exercise or play sports.
This year I will be running for this effort as a charity participant in the Berlin Marathon. My fundraising goal is $2,000.
Grew up outside Chicago and joined the blog while I lived in Salt Lake City. Now living outside Birmingham. I am married with two daughters. Wife thinks I'm crazy for doing marathons. And yes I am crazy I'm a scientist for a living...
