The Kids Run The OC Training Program is a 10 to 12 week local school program 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 every 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 Foundation certified coach. By the end of the program each student accumulates the equivalent of 25.2 miles of fun activity, and are ready to complete their own Marathon by completing their final mile at the Kids Run The OC held in conjunction with The OC Marathon Events at the OC Fair and Event Center on Saturday May 2nd.
Due to the fun and rewarding nature of the program, Kids Run the OC is expanding its reach and growing faster than ever this year and we need your help! Currently, Kids Run the OC is providing training to over 7500 kids at 80 schools and agencies encompassing 17 school districts in Orange County, CA. The program and training is provided to every participating school at no charge, so every kid at every school can join in the fun. In order to get as many kids in our schools at the final mile event, we have a scholarship program for every student that wants to participate on May 3, 2014 and can't afford to do so. This year we will award over 400 students scholarship dollars.
Won't you consider sponsoring one or more of these students at $29.00 a piece? Check out our videos and photos to see what a great program we have and how meaningful it is to these Orange County students.
