The OC Marathon Foundation's mission is to raise awareness and create impactful community programs promoting better fitness, nutrition and obesity prevention among children. One of the most impactful ways we accomplish this goal is through our Kids Run the OC program at local schools, on May 5, 2012.
The Kids Run The OC Training Program is a 10 to 12 week local school program developed in conjunction with the Orange County Department of Education designed to help pre-adolescent kids become more physically fit, promote an active and healthy lifestyle and combat the onset of childhood obesity. . . while having fun! This is accomplished through various games, which help improve speed, agility, hand/eye coordination, flexibility and your child's overall fitness. Students from each participating school are led through our popular and fun training program at their school by The OC Marathon certified coach. By the end of the program each student will have accumulated the equivalent of 25.2 miles of fun activity, and will be ready to finish their own Marathon by completing their final mile at the Kids Run The OC held in conjunction with The OC Marathon finish line events at the OC Fair and Event Center on Saturday, May 5, 2012.
