Mission Statement

The Mission of Run-Walk Events is to raise awareness about the "inactivity" epidemic in young people across the USA by creating events to encourage young people to run or walk at an early age in an effort to combat the effects of child obesity.

Description

Run-Walk Events was originally created to host the Race Across the USA. We ran a marathon a day from Huntington Beach, CA all the way to the White House in Washington DC 4 1/2 months later. Along the way, we visited over 5,000 students in 29 schools to challenge and encourage them around getting active and eating right.

Using the Race Across the USA as our launchpad, we are planning a series of running events that will begin on January 1, 2017 in Anaheim. The following year, we plan to add San Diego and Santa Barbara. Every event we hold will be a fundraiser in support of a local childhood fitness organization.
