Imagine thousands of anxious, screaming kids amid the backdrop of Sea World. That was the scene Saturday, June 2, 2012, for ING KiDS ROCK San Diego. Kids in grades K–7 participated in a one-mile, non-timed, non-competitive “fun run” to combat childhood obesity. They became “marathon finishers” by completing 25.2 miles of a 26.2-mile marathon at their own pace in the weeks before the event with guidance from parents or teachers using the Official ING Run For Something Better® Training Guide.
Guess what? Kids love running in the rain just as much as they love playing in the snow! It was evident at ING KiDS ROCK D.C. on Friday, March 16, at the D.C. Armory’s Parking Lot 6. The rain couldn’t stop nearly 800 kids in grades K-7 from running their final one mile. “It’s awesome that these kids can boast about being ‘marathoners’ — not something a lot of adults can claim,” said Dr. Andy Baldwin, U.S. Navy physician and ING KiDS ROCK and ING Run For Something Better® ambassador.
