UH Athletes to Volunteer Saturday at Marathon Kids Final Mile Celebration

April 11, 2013

HOUSTON Nearly 5,000 children, families, teachers and local supporters will descend on Houston’s Carl Lewis International Complex Saturday for the Marathon Kids Final Mile Celebration. The nearly 5,000 will include a number of University of Houston student-athletes who will volunteer Saturday morning, distributing finisher medals and signing autographs.

The Marathon Kids Final Mile Celebration honors children in grades kindergarten through fifth grade who participated in the Marathon Kids 26.2-mile challenge as they cross the finish line of Tom Tellez Track to complete the challenge and receive their finisher medals.

The event, slated to start at 10 a.m., will begin with a short opening ceremony before each participant runs or walks a ceremonial final lap around the track, competing their challenge and receiving finisher awards as they make their way through reward alley.
