RUN TO FIGHT OBESITY
You can’t fight obesity sitting down.
May 3, 2009 will be the Obesity Prevention Foundation run in Reno, Nevada to raise awareness and raise funds to fight childhood obesity. The run will be a 10K, part of the Reno Rock-N-River Run that also supports a half marathon and a marathon. The Obesity Prevention Foundation Team will collect a minimum of $5.00 per kilometer per team entrant with the goal of raising over $50.00 per participant and the goal of raising $2,000.000 for the foundation’s work.
I am donning my running shoes in anticipation and looking forward to the run!
Additionally, Thank you to all who attended the seventh annual Western Bariatric Institute fashion show that took place last weekend at the Reno Convention Center. This year the focus was and continues to be on “giving back” and there is still much work to be done to prevent childhood obesity in our communities.
