Each Marafun participant will run, walk, or wheelchair a minimum of 4 Km per week in the weeks leading up to race day. Marafun participants will cap off their hard work with a fun run on part of the marathon course on eace day. The cost of this program is $15.00 per student, which includes a t-shirt and a medal! Throughout the program, there will be opportunities for the participants to learn about an active lifestyle, maintaining a physical activity program to promote health, and the importance of having personal goals. It is truly a unique way for kids to increase their activity levels, nutritional knowledge, and self esteem.
