Kred Leader Dr. Andy Baldwin leads ING Kids Rock in Washington DC; Leaderboard spotlights event participants

Kred Leader Dr. Andy Baldwin will be in Washington DC this Saturday for ING Kids Rock, and Kred is supporting the event with an Influence & Outreach Leaderboard to show influencers and spread the word about the event in real time.

ING Kids Rock is a run for students from kindergarten through seventh grade.  Its goal is to fight childhood obesity and help kids create healthy habits for life across America.  The students at Barnard Elementary School in northwest Washington have all pledged to run a marathon – over 26 miles – over several weeks by running as little as one mile at a time.

Kred has created an ING Kids Rock influence leaderboard at http://ingkidsrun.kred.com.  The top 50 Influencers and Outreachers tweeting with the hashtags #ingkidsrun or #RnRUSA are at the top of the leaderboard, which updates in real time.  Kred is community based, and we love helping Community Leaders fulfill their community goals.

Dr. Baldwin is the national ambassador for the ING Run For Something Better®, a charitable initiative that promotes youth fitness and provides grants and funding for school-based running programs across the country.   People who wish to make a donation may purchase ING’s orange laces at www.orangelaces.com.  Follow Dr. Andy Baldwin at @drandybaldwin and ING Run For Something Better at @orangelaces.
