EVENT DATE: MAY 16, 2017, OCTOBER 14, 2017 and NOVEMBER 2, 2017
HMF is fully committed to helping school children develop a healthy, active lifestyle. Through HMF FitKids in School we support elementary and middle school students with a 6 week, goal oriented running program at NO cost to the student or their participating school. The culmination is a grand “Final Mile” event produced by HMF complete with music, cheering spectators, commemorative finisher medals, t-shirts, healthy snacks and fitness activities. HMF FitKids in School also offers its HMF FitKids Relay Racers program for those schools and students who prefer to complete their 6 week running program at the Eversource Hartford Marathon. HMF FitKids Relay Racers was formerly known as Jeff’s Running Partners program and honors the memory of founding HMF Board member Jeff Partridge.
- 2400 students participated in HMF FitKids in School programs in 2016.
- The Spring Final Mile event will be at Walnut Hill Park in New Britain on May 16, 2017
- The Fall Final Mile event will be at Rentschler Field in East Hartford on November 2, 2017.
