[ARCHIVED] Teddy Herrera FREE Presentation

Teddy Herrera is speaking at the Worthington Community Center tonight (Friday, April 20) at 5pm. This is a FREE family event!

Teddy Herrera founded the organization AA4CO (Across America for Childhood Obesity) with the mission of combating, and ultimately eliminating, childhood obesity by inspiring kids of all sizes to actively chase their dreams. He has been on many popular morning shows speaking about his incredible journey- biking across America to spread his message.

Teddy Herrera left Elk Grove, California on June 5th, 2010. His goal? 11,000 miles biking across America to fight childhood obesity. For those who think that this is no big deal for someone into cycling, Teddy Herrera is NOT a cyclist. Herrera stated “I got this bike a week before I left because I wanted to show the kids by example how to get out and live a healthy life.”
