Obesity Prevention Foundation burns some calories at Reno's Rock-n-River Marathon and Half Marathon Festival. Here are some pictures from the 10k race we ran to promote obesity awarenss. Be sure to join us for the run next year.

Amanda Ferris says:

Although I did not have high expectations for an hour long assembly, Dr. Watson really impressed me with his delivery (at the children's level) and he made it fun and memorable for the students and for us teachers. I feel that my kids did walk away from that assembly learning something about what foods they eat and how to be more active in taking care of their bodies. I appreciate his time spent with us. I would recommend that assembly every year at any school.

Thank you.
