The UnitedHealthcare IRONKIDS 2014 Running Series features nine one-mile fun-runs and a dip-and-dash in 10 states. Today's Fun Run was $15/person, and included close to 75 young "triathletes to be", ages 3 to 15. Children from low-income and low-education households are three-times more likely to suffer from obesity, which is a leading risk factor for diabetes, heart disease and many cancers, according to America's Health Rankings®, an annual comprehensive assessment of the nation's health on a state-by-state basis.
