NEW YORK, June 2 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Global financial services leader ING announced today that the celebrated Latin music artist Marc Anthony will headline the 2008 ING Presents Marc Anthony Juntos en Concierto concert series. Anthony will take the stage this summer and fall, with the first concert scheduled for July. The concerts, produced by Live Nation, begin in Los Angeles, and will feature other high-energy performances in Chicago, New York, Miami, Houston and Irvine, CA.
In addition to showcasing the multi-talented singer, actor and producer, the ING Presents Marc Anthony Juntos en Concierto concert series will be a platform for ING and Marc Anthony to promote children's fitness and fight childhood obesity, especially within Hispanic communities. This is the third consecutive year that ING and Marc Anthony have partnered together for an exciting music tour. For every ticket sold, $2 will be donated to the ING Run for Something Better program, a national initiative that helps fund school-based running and fitness education programs.
"Through my music, I want to make a difference in the lives of young people across the country. One way is by addressing the critical need to help reduce childhood obesity among Latino children," said Anthony. "I'm encouraged by ING's efforts, and excited to be raising awareness for the ING Run for Something Better program and the important role it plays."
"We're thrilled to once again be partnering with Marc Anthony," said

only is Marc an inspirational artist, but he's truly concerned about the
health and well-being of young Americans today. We look forward to another
fantastic concert tour together while promoting healthy lifestyles through
