Dean Karnazes will run 3 routes through Arcadia and Messinia to help promote the awareness, and the benefits of the healthy diet of the region. The main focus will be on educating children in Greece, the United States and the UK about the issues of childhood obesity. Dean will essentially be “coming home to Greece” to reconnect with his roots.
His passion is to fight and end childhood obesity. His goal is to show the world (especially children and their parents) an example of how a Messinian diet can help you lead a healthier, longer and more productive life. It should also be pointed out the fact that children in Messinia are not obese and do not have the kinds of health problems, such as diabetes, that you would normally find in the US and UK.
