Event Organizer Website
Approximately 12.5 million children are obese. Childhood obesity is now a leading preventable cause of death and illness in children. Our goal is to get several hundreds of area youth and their families and friends to participate in the 5K Run/Walk, and encourage regular physical activity. Secondly, the event is a fundraiser that will ensure our seminars, health fairs and service events can be delivered to participants at no cost.
Thank you for your support and dedication to fighting childhood obesity. You will recieve a FREE ticket to the Georgia State University Panthers Football game against the Richmond Spiders on September 22, 2012 at the Georgia Dome. The Picture of Health Foundation is a non-profit organization with a mission to provide the community with health education and to empower people to change unhealthy lifestyles thereby increasing life expectancy. This year’s 5K Run/Walk includes a Health Fair at Tucker Middle School, the location of the finish line. There will be an awards ceremony immediately following the run/walk.
