I woke up Saturday morning to join hundreds of Houston area students at Barnett Stadium for the Marathon Kids Final Mile Medal Celebration.
17,000 Houston area K-5th grade school children and parents have been running and walking 26.2 miles over the last six months. Today was the final 2 laps to complete the marathon.
Districts invited to participate in the free program are Houston ISD, Spring Branch ISD, Fort Bend ISD, Clear Creek ISD, private schools and homeschoolers. Next year Galveston ISD and a few other districts will be allowed into the free program.
