ING Run For Something Better: Running the 2010 Disney Marathon to Combat Childhood Obesity
Posted on October 19 2009
One of the flyers in my race packet from the 2009 Hartford Marathon was for a program known as the ING Run For Something Better. ING sponsors the Hartford Marathon (among others), and the Run For Something Better Program “helps fund running and fitness education programs in schools to show kids how exercise can help achieve good health.” Inspiring my own kids to be active is one of the reasons why I love to run, and I believe that healthy exercise habits that are developed in childhood will go a long way toward stemming the obesity epidemic that currently exists in the United States. With this in mind, I’ve decided to try and raise some money for this great program by running the 2010 Disney Marathon in honor of healthy kids. My goals are very modest (this is my first time attempting something like this), and if you’d like to donate to the cause you can visit my donation page for the ING Run For Something Better program here.
Below is a short video describing this program:
