Seventeen campuses received a total grant of over $50,000 to participate in the Marathon Kids program last year. This year, we plan to add three more campuses for a total of 20!
Midland ISD registered 17 running clubs through the Marathon Kids National Grant which saw over
3,300 runners participate across the district. Twenty-one coaches and volunteers participated in the
first ever Marathon Kids Leadership Academy held at General Tommy Franks Elementary. Ninety-five
percent of runners ran at least 26.2 miles over the school year and the top-performing Marathon Kids
were recognized at the Root Beer Mile which ended the season.
