Run, Annie, Run

Annie Howard, a Washington and Lee sophomore from Alexandria, Va., has entered the ING New York City Marathon on Sunday, Nov. 6, with Team for Kids. She’s hoping to raise at least $100 for every mile that she runs. If she succeeds, that will translate into a $2,600 donation to Team for Kids, which supports health and fitness programs. As of today, Annie has raised almost 60 percent of her goal.

The funds will bolster free or low-cost school- and community-based health and fitness programs for children who would otherwise have little or no access to regular physical activity. Team for Kids serves nearly 100,000 children each year.
