ING and Fit Miami Foundation Name Winners of 'ING Run For Something Better' Student Essay Contest
Date:1/21/2009

MIAMI, Jan. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Financial services leader ING and the Fit Miami Foundation today selected three winners of a student essay contest that celebrates their success in the ING Run For Something Better running program in Miami-Dade County public middle schools.

    The top three essays were submitted by the following students:
    -- Kasey Gonzalez, South Dade Middle School, 7th grade
    -- Christian Rivera, Palm Springs Middle School, 8th grade
    -- Miriam Rose Singer, Palmetto Middle School, 7th Grade

The contest was open to students in nearly 30 Miami-Dade County middle schools who have been participating in the program and were challenged to run 25 miles over 15 weeks in their P.E. classes. All students are invited to complete the "final mile" of their cumulative marathon at the ING Miami Marathon & Half Marathon, which takes place Sunday, January 25 at 11:00 a.m. The kids will run a special race and get the thrill of crossing the same finish line as the adults. Transportation, lunches, t-shirts, finisher medals, and entertainment are provided to students at the event.

"We know that children are learning many positive lessons through our ING Run For Something Better, not only about staying healthy and fit, but also about setting goals and working hard to achieve them," said Rhonda Mims, President, ING Foundation. "Holding an essay contest was a fantastic way to hear more about what the kids in Miami-Dade were getting out of the program, in their very own words."

The ING Run For Something Better was introduced four years ago in Miami-Dade County, when ING became title sponsor of the ING Miami Marathon & Half Marathon. The program is managed locally through a partnership with PR Racing, LLC and the Fit Miami Foundation.

Last year, more than 11,000 Miami-Dade County middle school students took part in the ING Run For Something Better pr
