We are a non-profit children’s program designed to fight childhood obesity by educating children on healthy habits and training for a 5K or Fun Run.  Your support in our fundraiser event would help us scholarship more children into the program.  Last fall 260 children participated in OBX GO FAR and 48 received scholarships!
