The Marathon Kids Kick-Off Celebration last Thursday was a huge success and loads of fun for all involved! Approximately 100 children, ranging from kindergarteners to 5th graders, joined forces on the Travis playground to run the first steps of their marathon journey together. These kids have each committed to running the equivalent of one to four marathons between now and the end of April. A huge kudos to Coach Dodd for organizing this event and the parent volunteers who helped make it so successful. The joy that it brought to each child present was clearly evident.

As a reminder, parent-led Running Clubs will commence the week of October 29th. Watch this space and the Travis PTA Facebook page for additional information.
