Marathon Kids 25th Anniversary Campaign

In 1995, Kay Morris read a story about students running increments around the world and was inspired to start Marathon Kids. 25 years and 2.5 million Marathon Kids later, we are still running! Kay's vision was that Marathon Kids would be free and available to all communities. Starting this fall, our 25th anniversary season, Marathon Kids is free for schools and community organizations in all 50 states (read on to learn more)! To celebrate, we invite you to help kick off the next quarter-century of active kids by making a donation in her honor. Thank you for your support!


$201 Raised of $10,000 Goal

In 25 years, Marathon Kids has transformed the lives of more than two and a half million kids. Our main goal is inclusivity. We partner with Title 1 and disadvantaged schools and communities first. We wish for all kids, no matter their difference, to feel included, welcomed, and have access to fun, supportive, and educational physical activities.
