Healthy Kids Running Series Featured Community Coordinator- Allison Yu, Lake Nona, FL
Allison came to Healthy Kids Running Series after her children participated in the East Orlando Series. Her children loved participating in an activity that promotes healthy living and exercise so much that she and her husband thought it would be a great idea to bring HKRS to the Lake Nona area.
Yu has always instilled her passion for running into her children. Her 7-year-old son participated in his first 5k at 6 months old while being pushed in the running stroller and her younger son ‘ran’ his first half marathon while in the womb at 20 weeks! Allison loves how running can really bring a family together and appreciates all of the opportunities the sport has to offer.
Allison’s favorite thing about being a Coordinator is seeing the kids being active together with their families and challenging themselves each week.
Community outreach is also very important to Allison. All of the proceeds from the Series are donated to the Central Florida Children’s Home, which is located within the Lake Nona community. Yu notes that she is very proud that HKRS gives children of the community a chance to meet their neighbors while fostering a culture of health and fitness for families.
Thank you Allison, for being a part of our Healthy Kids Running Series Community Coordinator family!
