|The first day of 2013 will be one to remember. In a city near you, thousands of people will set out to do a 5K and end up starting a movement. Men, women, families, co-workers and neighbors are making a commitment to live a healthy lifestyle while helping others do the same. Go ahead, join the movement.
It's almost that time of year! In just over a month, the airwaves will be jam packed with New Years Resolution ideas – I’ll go to the gym everyday, I’ll eat more leafy greens, I’ll spend less… but, these resolutions come and go quickly. What if rather than a resolution, you made a Commitment? Rather than making a short list to change, you committed to living a healthy lifestyle 24/7/365? And what if it wasn’t just about you, but it was also about helping others live healthy lifestyles and setting an example for generations to come?
You undoubtedly have seen the sobering statistics:
• 2 in 3 Americans are considered overweight or obese
• Our children’s life expectancy is now less than ours, due largely to obesity
• 25.8 million Americans have diabetes
• The average child spends more than 30% of his/her day in front of a screen
• Ultimately, we are living a lifestyle that will destroy us
join us on January 1st to kick off 2013 with good health fitness, fun, giveaways and more! Participating in the Commitment Day 5K costs less than taking a family of 4 to the movie theatre and kids 17 and under enter free with an adult.
