Community members are invited to attend a kickoff celebration for Austin ISD's new partnership with Marathon Kids and Nike.
Through the collaboration, AISD elementary school teachers will use the Marathon Kids research-based curriculum during daily Working Out for Wellness time.
During the course of the year, students will be encouraged to run or walk the equivalent of four marathons in 10-minute daily increments. For each marathon completed, students receive Nike rewards.
The kickoff event will include a short jog around the school campus, so dress comfortably and bring your running shoes!
What: Kickoff celebration for Austin ISD, Marathon Kids and Nike Partnership
When: 9–9:30 a.m. Friday, Sept. 18
Where: Ortega Elementary School, 1135 Garland Ave.
