DCRC supports several worthy causes that pleague our community.
One that we are passionate about is fighting
"Over the past three decades, the childhood obesity rate has more than doubled for preschool children aged 2-5 years and adolescents aged 12-19 years, and it has more than tripled for children aged 6-11 years. At present, approximately nine million children over 6 years of age are considered obese." - activelivingresources.com
Our goal is to highlight this epidemic three times a year through walking / running events, a Presidential Fittness Program and Social Gatherings. We look forward to working with kids from Washington DC, Maryland and Virginia and educating them on the benefits of exercising.
If your company, school or organization would like to create a fundraiser for this or any other cause, please feel free to call us at 240-472-9201 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
HELP US FIGHT CHILDHOOD OBESITY BY DONATING TODAY
Funds from your donation will be used to help host Three Walking / Running Events and One Presidential Fitness Camp each year for the future generation (Our Kids)
RUNNERS: We will also have running sessions three times a week. During the sessions we will match up runners by their skill level so everyone has a group of similar runners to train with.
Running is a higher-impact exercise that can catapult you into a higher level of fitness and health. Running doesn't come easy to all but with the proper technique and repetition walkers become runners and runners increase their speed and distance.
Running can help you:
Lower low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol (the "bad" cholesterol)
