Join The Chris Kyle Frog Foundation for a Pre-Release Screening of AMERICAN SNIPER

I was not financially compensated for this post. I’m sharing the information because I want to!

CKFF_AS_invite-all-locationsIn anticipation of the release of Warner Bros. Pictures’ AMERICAN SNIPER, the production company has teamed up with the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation to offer special pre-release screenings of the film, directed by Oscar-winning filmmaker Clint Eastwood and starring Bradley Cooper as Chris Kyle and Sienna Miller as his wife, Taya. This movie is based on Chris Kyle’s autobiography and recounts the personal story of the most lethal sniper in U.S. military history.

Eight cities have been chosen to host these events on Wednesday, January 14: Dallas, Kansas City, Chicago, San Diego, Norfolk/Virginia Beach, Miami, Denver, and San Antonio.

In case you unaware, Taya Kyle launched the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation this past Veterans Day with a vision of establishing a nationwide connection of service members and first responder families.

Tips on How to Get Your Child Into Running!

All opinions are my own.
SharkRunningAt three years old, I’ve noticed my son’s normal energetic levels have increased to “OMG, WHERE IS HE GETTING ALL THIS ENERGY!!” Seriously! He’s giving up naps and still can run around like a little mad man. I’m starting to realize more and more the need for him to get outside and burn that energy and wear himself out. It will make bedtime that much easier! This is why I’ve decided to get him into running. Even at his young age, running can quickly become a fun activity that goes beyond just racing around the playground.

Right now my focus is just for my son to find a fun activity where he can not only be active, but feel like he’s made an accomplishment. At older ages, kids will have running tests in school. While my son still has a few years to go, it’s not too early to start preparation!
