From its inception, the Dallas Loop-the-Lake Foundation committed to support an organization that puts the health and wellbeing of local children first to prevent obesity and promote health in the community. We identified Marathon Kids as a strong promoter of children’s well-being through their physical activity programming. Marathon Kids run the equivalent of four marathons during their season and learn about healthy food choices along the way.
Marathon Kids works with schools, families, and communities to improve current activity levels and encourage lifelong healthy behavior adoption. By promoting nutritious choices—like eating fruits and veggies—alongside more daily exercise, we’re boosting confidence and setting a younger generation on the path to stay fit throughout the rest of their lives. Marathon Kids is using running as a vehicle for change – in a child’s life and in our community! Learn More
