A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Marathon Kids, as the Austin Rockin’ Resolution Race beneficiary.
Marathon Kids, Inc., a 501 (c)(3), incorporated in 2004, and was born out of the belief that kids deserve to live happier, healthier lives – and that we have the ability to help make that possible. Kay Morris, a self-described “middle-aged, slow runner,” founded Marathon Kids in 1995 after being motivated by completing her first ever running log. She created a program based on the idea that this same simple concept could motivate kids, boost their physical activity and introduce them to the joy of running. Their mission is simple: to get kids moving. They do that by creating Marathon Kid running clubs in schools and communities across the U.S. and by sharing the belief that, “if kids participate in Marathon Kids running club, they’ll have a much better shot at getting enough daily activity. When that happens, they’ll be more likely to perform better in school, be healthier and have improved behavior.”
