Over the next nine months, Colin Harris is running more than 7500 km. In fact he is running across the entire country. But this is not a personal health kick. Rather he is doing it, step by excruciating step, for the health of kids nationwide.
Harris is alarmed that today’s youth are spending more than 50 hours per week in front of screens. More specifically, a growing body of peer reviewed science is showing that increases in childhood obesity, diabetes, ADD, and declining school performance, are related to lack of outdoor activities and direct interaction with nature.
