Come out and help support in helping to combat childhood obesity and help build a healthier lifestyle for elementary school kids and their families. Over a 6 month period they will run the distance of a marathon (26.2 miles). We will be volunteering on the field and in the stands doing the following: passing out gifts/water/other goodies to the kids, being ushers, manning the start/finish line, cheering for the kids as they run.

There will be some entertainment put on by the kids before the running starts.

Event duration: 8AM - 1PM

In the spring we will be doing the closing ceremonies where we will help award the children with their finisher medals.

When you RSVP, you will be prompted to supply your Full name and e-mail address. This information is required to get you registered as part of the group.

I am setting the deadline to RSVP for Oct 1st, so I can submit our roster. If you want to be added after this date, please send me a private message and I will work with MarathonKids to get you added to the roster.

Unfortunately I will be out of town for the event, but I plan on being there for the closing ceremonies in the spring. Chances you will be split up doing different jobs throughout the morning.
