Live Healthy & Thrive Youth Foundation encourages all walk participants to raise a minimum of $25 in pledges. These funds will support community programs that provide $500 book scholarships to high school students who want to major in education, medicine, health or culinary arts. The oh so pretty Lori Manns, founder of Live Healthy & Thrive Youth Foundation says,
“We hope this event will draw attention to the rising epidemic of obesity and motivate parents to exercise with their children.”
The theme of the 5K event is “Unite for Healthy Kids, The Next Generation” which is also listed as a cause on Facebook benefiting the organization.
