Jeff’s Running PartnersA Marathon Relay for SchoolsA program for schools to promote fitness and charitable giving

via Crowdrise 2 years ago

THE STORY:

To honor the memory of our founding Board member and good friend, Jeff Partridge, the Hartford Marathon Foundation created a relay race for school children within the ING Hartford Marathon.

The program is appropriately called “Jeff’s Running Partners”, because of Jeff’s passion for running and his commitment to education. A teacher, coach or parent representing a school, will run the entire Hartford Marathon accompanied by a team of students running as a relay team. Each student runs one or more miles, depending on his or her ability. It is possible for each student to run multiple miles, if it is deemed appropriate. In lieu of the full marathon, 2 or more adults may each run a portion of the marathon.

 

The future of our sport (and our society) lies with our healthy, young children. We must do everything possible to encourage fitness in our kids. We are headed in the right direction. Through our own dedication to running and triathlon, we demonstrate the benefits of being fit and the great quality of life offered through health and fitness.

HMF has committed to do more. We are offering more kids running events and are staging a Family Fitness Training Program beginning in June. We lowered 5K entry fees for kids so families can run together without breaking the bank. Our website has a dedicated page to youth fitness events and information. We have also partnered with other organizations to promote youth triathlons produced throughout the state.
