Marathon Kids is on mission to get kids moving. We set up running/walking clubs across the nation with families, in schools, after-school programs and in community organizations/partnerships. We empower adults to be the change agents and help kids reach their full potential. The first 10 years of life really are critical for a kid –– healthy behaviors are learned and learning them early can make all the difference. This generation of kids is the first with a shorter life expectancy than their parents. The diseases that will shorten their lifespan are entirely preventable with proper diet and adequate exercise. Help us reach more kids by donating any dollar amount or sign your family up today to keep moving with the Marathon Kids at Home program. Still have questions? Email programs@marathonkids.org
