Description


Marathon KidsĀ® is a free, sixteen-year-old, trademarked, incremental, school and community based fitness program. It is a six month endurance building running/walking, nutrition and schoolyard gardening program for K-5th graders and their families. We are in nine cities and growing "organically" across the country. We passionately protect the integrity of the free program and work hard to keep it free for our target market: children most vulnerable to sedentary lives, childhood obesity and type 2 diabetes. Marathon Kids depends on corporate sponsorships, foundations, individual donations and in-kind donations to fund 100% of its operations. We are a recognized 501(c)(3) organization by the IRS. Donations are fully tax-deductible according to IRS guidelines
