USF's Own Corinna Halloran, Marathoner
How goes it? I’ve decided to make things a little interesting this summer and fall by starting a new journey. From now until November 1, I’m turning from a casual runner into a marathoner... yup, that’s right I’m running a marathon! And not just any marathon... the NYC Marathon! I’m going from running 3 miles every 3 days to confidentially running a 26.2 miles, no worries-- WHOA!
More importantly, I’ll be running to raise money for Team for Kids, a charity that fights childhood obesity nationally and internationally. Team for Kids is ending the obesity epidemic by creating and funding running-based fitness and health programs. Team for Kids sees that children who have intertwined running and daily exercise into their lives improves health, self-discipline, self-esteem, and their performance in school. Team for Kids hopes that by 2010, 100,000 children will be touched by the TFK program-- and you can help them achieve this goal!
Let’s work together to fight childhood obesity and help children have a happy, healthy, better future by donating to Team for Kids.
