Join us tomorrow, Wednesday, September 26, on the Rose F. Kennedy Greenway at Dewey Square by South Station as Mayor Thomas M. Menino extends his Boston Moves for Health initiative by proclaiming September 26, 2012, as Saucony Run For Good Day in Boston.
The new partnership between Saucony and the city of Boston will encourage residents to participate in the Mayor’s challenge of moving 10 million miles together as part of Boston Moves for Health.
In collaboration with the Saucony Run For Good Foundation, Mayor Menino will be joined by U.S. Olympians, including gold medal winners DeeDee Trotter and Lauryn Williams to commemorate the day, spread awareness for National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month, and call on the Boston community to help get kids back on the fast track to health. Students from the Boston Public Schools will join the Olympians in a short workout on the Greenway.
DeeDee Trotter, a member of the 2012 U.S. Olympic Track and Field Team will present a Run For Good grant to the American Diabetes Association New England to launch Run For Your Life!, a clinical weight loss program for overweight and obese youth in the Greater Boston area.
