In its second year, 107 students at Stan Stanley Elementary completed the Marathon Kids program. Marathon Kids is a national fitness program for children. To complete the program, children must walk or run a marathon (26.2 miles) over several months of the school year and track their progress in quarter-mile increments. The goal of the program is to encourage healthy living through walking and running. During the school year, children had opportunity to participate in the Marathon Kids Houston Area Kick Off and Final Mile, Katy YMCA Turkey Dash, Texas Children’s Hospital Kids Fun Run, and other local runs. The children who completed the program closed out the year with a celebratory ice cream social. Program leads are Mary Jane Nowak and Jessica Wilson.
