Richard Nares to Run ..., 23 Sept 2014 [cached]
Richard Nares to Run his 6th Rock 'n' Roll Marathon On Sunday, May 31, 2009, Richard Nares will be running his 6th Rock 'n' Roll Marathon not only to honor his son, Emilio, but to raise funds for the foundation. In last year's event, he finished in 4 hours and 59 minutes, and managed to raise an incredible $11,000 for the foundation. Knowing that so many people were behind him really helped Richard to push to the finish line.
Emily then sought out ENF founders Richard and Diane Nares.
"When I learned just how dedicated Richard and Diane were, that became the direction I knew I wanted to go in." she said.
"Emily has been a real force and huge plus for our foundation," comments Richard Nares. " She 's such an effective advocate because she's living proof of what families endure. Getting support from families like the Deeres makes us who we are and their support has been invaluable."
When the MBE annual grants program was announced, the Deeres knew that ENF's emerging nutritional education courses would be an ideal beneficiary. ENF has been given space including use of kitchen facilities, at the Ronald McDonald House near Rady Children's Hospital. The room was first used for informal knitting and sewing sessions, which allowed families and siblings to bond. However, Richard noticed that many of the kids spending time at the Ronald McDonald house were overweight or not getting the proper nutrition to enhance their treatment regimens. About a year ago, Richard began inviting interns from a culinary institute to prepare healthy meals and lead lessons on nutritious, budget-conscious meal preparation.
According to Richard, the availability of healthy food at the hospital is extremely limited. He wants the whole family to integrate a healthy diet into its lifestyle and get in the habit of taking healthy snacks to the hospital instead of relying on fast food and vending machines.
While Teresa teaches and cooks, Richard and other ENF staffers serve the steady stream of families hungry for lunch.
A cacophony of languages fills the kitchen as families share their experiences and trade hugs with Richard and ENF volunteers. The Ronald McDonald house also offers one of the few nearby opportunities for families and patients to escape their hospital rooms for a few hours.
Currently, ENF offers cooking classes two days a week, but Richard says the MBE grant will allow ENF to expand the classes to five days a week. "Our focus is on low-income families where money is extremely tight so this benefits them greatly," he explains. " Expanding our classes will provide more food for families to take home or take to the hospital. Programs like this take time, but I think we've already made a big impact on teaching the fundamentals of healthy eating and this grant will only increase our impact."
An equally important element of the cooking classes is the socialization and bonding opportunities for families visiting the Ronald McDonald House. Richard explains that there are no activities during the day, but the cooking courses bring families together with their families. It's a phenomenon he's already witnessed with sewing and knitting sessions ENF offers. "We wanted to give families some activities, so our staff came up with the idea of sewing and knitting. At first, only three to four women showed up, but now 15-20 regularly attend," he comments.
