With obesity on the rise among children – and the population in general – it is crucial to stress the importance of physical activity to stay healthy. One way for kids and teens to stay active is by participating in a sport such as running. Most Lansing-area schools offer track and/or cross country, and many recreational clubs exist for runners of all ages and abilities. The Lansing Twilight 5k helps support these organizations by donating proceeds of the event to youth running clubs.
ChurchWyble, P.C., is proud to be a part of this endeavor. Associate attorney Nolan L. Erickson, a recreational runner of sorts, participated in his second Twilight 5k on June 19, 2013. Despite a hard day’s work prior to the race, Nolan had just enough energy left to finish a respectable 2nd in his age group.
The event, which started and ended at the R.E. Olds Transportation Museum and followed the scenic Lansing River Trail, was a success once again.
While exercise recommendations vary by age and other conditions, physical activity is an important component of a healthy lifestyle. Ask your doctor about some healthy options to keep you moving.
