The kids, ages 3-15 had the opportunity to run on the same course as the 2014 IRONMAN 70.3 Silverman. The one-mile fun run is for “triathletes to be” and aims to help stem the rising tide of childhood obesity through exercise and healthy lifestyles.

Before the fun run, UnitedHealthcare presented a $3,000 cheque to Brian Knudson, president, Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern Nevada, to support its healthy living programs. The company also provided 150 free admissions to Club members, enabling youth who may face cost barriers to participate in the running event.

This is the third year UnitedHealthcare is supporting IRONKIDS as part of the company’s commitment to help stem the rising tide of childhood obesity through healthy lifestyles.
