We Run Together
The medal for this virtual race is 3″. The back of the medal spins to reveal different reasons why we run.
I run because I can.
I run to feel centered.
I run to destress.
I run to reach goals.
I run to feel free.
I run to be the best me.
I run for charity.
I run to get stronger
Our “We Run Together” virtual race benefits Action for Healthy Kids.
Action for Healthy Kids® fights childhood obesity, undernourishment and physical inactivity by helping schools become healthier places so kids can live healthier lives. They partner with a legion of dedicated volunteers — teachers, students, moms, dads, school wellness experts and more — from within the ranks of our 70,000+ network to create healthful school changes. Because everyone has a part to play in ending the nation’s childhood obesity epidemic.
Their grassroots efforts are supported by a collaboration of more than 70 organizations, corporations and government agencies.
Working together, they are giving kids the keys to health and academic success by meeting them where they are — in the classroom, in the cafeteria and on the playground — with fun physical activity and nutrition lessons and changes that make it possible for them to eat nutritiously and play actively every day.
