MYFBYE's Garrett sets American record
Move Your Feet Before You Eat! Foundation's Anne Garrett, #80 above, set an American record for 80-year-olds by running the 2015 Surf City Half-Marathon in 2:13:23. Garrett is a spokesperson for the Foundation and travels to schools and businesses to inspire children and adults to be more physically active. No doubt, her remarkable accomplishment has inspired many more people with coverage in the San Diego Union-Tribune and other media, including:
The Move Your Feet Before You Eat! Foundation (MYFBYE) is sponsoring a Fitness Field Day at three local schools in May to promote physical fitness in children.
The field days are scheduled at St. Mary’s Star of the Sea School on May 5th, Cesar Chavez Middle school on May 8th, and Martin Luther King Jr. Middle School on May 15th. They will be held during students’ PE periods and will feature an inflatable obstacle course and other games. In order to participate, students must have zero PE infractions from after Spring Break to the day before their field day.
The Carlsbad-based Move Your Feet Before You Eat®! Foundation was created to promote health and well being through incorporating regular physical fitness into daily life, utilizing education, special events, and instructive coaching. It is for all ages, but its sharpest focus is on encouraging physical activity among young people, who face an epidemic of lifestyle diseases such as diabetes that are an increasing threat, in part, because today's children aren't getting enough physical activity.
Events, such as the field days, are designed to be fun ways to encourage physical activity among young people.
To support field days and other events, the Foundation raises money through donations at events such as the annual Pacific Marine Credit Union O’side Turkey Trot each Thanksgiving in Oceanside. More information about MYFBYE is available at www.moveyourfeetfoundation.org.
