HOUSTON -- In hopes of inspiring young kids to pursue a goal, Houston student-athletes from baseball, track and field, and golf shared their love for running and walking by participating in the Marathon Kids experience last Saturday at Tom Tellez Track and Field Stadium on campus.
 
"Marathon Kids is a great event we participate in every year," senior track and field team member and SAAC President Karley King said. "All the student-athletes enjoy coming out to support the kids in their adventure of running a full marathon."


ABOUT THE EXPERIENCE
Thousands of Houston area K-5th grade school children and parents ceremonially begin running/walking 26.2 miles in increments of ¼ to ½ mile at a time over six months, coloring in their Marathon Kids Running Logs©.  They also are challenged to eat 26.2 days a month of 5-a-day fruits and veggies, coloring in their "Fuel Logs". Together in a free, glorious, ceremonial Kick Off Celebration, they will start their first mile of their marathon with other Houston area schools and families.
 
ABOUT MARATHON KIDS
Our mission is to build joyful community around children and be quickly accepted into public, private and home schools as a free, innovative, celebratory fitness and nutrition program, resonating with the child... and with the child's family. The goal is for the child to develop the love and habit of moving through space and to carry forward the power of muscular, nutritional and psychological well-being. For more information on Marathon Kids, visit http://www.marathonkids.org/about.

 
Once again University of Houston student-athletes continue to build relationships within the community with those who support them on and off the playing surface as Cougars.
