2018-2019: Seventeen campuses received a total grant of over $50,000 to participate in the Marathon Kids program last year.
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.
In 2019-2020, we added three more campuses for a total of 20!
In 2020-2021 all elementary campuses plus Young Women's Leadership Academy are participating in the Marathon Kids Program!
