This November, the 3TV Phoenix 10K and Half Marathon will be celebrating its 38th year promoting health and fitness here in Phoenix. On Sunday, November 3rd, runners from all over the valley will hit the streets through downtown Phoenix in what I’m considering the first major race of the 2013-2014 race season here in the Valley.
The race benefits the Mollen Foundation, which fights childhood obesity by empowering, encouraging and motivating children to live active and healthy lifestyles. Their experienced medical and educational professionals have partnered with key community leaders and youth educators to give parents and school- aged children “hands-on” tools to succeed in attaining their lifestyle changes. The goal of the Mollen Foundation is to promote a healthy lifestyle in children that includes fitness, nutrition and self-esteem through exercise programs and nutritional education. And, since childhood obesity is such a huge problem in our society today, I’m more than happy to support this foundation and all the good work they do.
I just registered for the PHX10K Half Marathon – to be my first main race of this year’s race season, to support the Mollen Foundation and help prevent childhood obesity, and to give me a solid test race during my marathon training schedule this coming fall. I’m beyond excited for the event, and I hope you’ll join me!
