E01: Cami Hawkins - Marathon Kids

In Episode 01 of the Charity Charge Show, the founder of Charity Charge chats with Cami Hawkins, the CEO of Marathon Kids.

Marathon Kids works for any kid, at any fitness level. Kids set their goals and track their progress on a journey to complete four marathons, or 104.8 miles, over the course of the running club season. They run, or walk, one lap at a time, one day at a time, and before they know it they’ve gone farther than they ever dreamed.

They learn how to fuel their bodies so they can run faster, better, longer. And for a little extra motivation, they earn fun Nike rewards at milestones along the way. They have a network of dedicated adults showing them how it’s done, and most importantly, a motivated and inspiring coach supporting them every step of the way.

Research shows that when kids participate in Marathon Kids, they have a much better chance of getting enough daily physical activity. That’s good news for their bodies, and their minds. When they feel healthy, they perform better in school and exhibit better behavior. The organizations methods have been tested and verified by the scientific community. Research shows that our running clubs effectively jump-start healthy, long-lasting change. Participant rewards are the best around – kids love them and feel even more motivated to reach their goals. But more than anything, Marathon Kids love running because it’s fun. Running means speed and freedom, healthy competition and accomplishment. The program teaches kids the joy in running a distance (104.8 miles) that plenty of people think is impossible.
