Encouraging young people to be active is an important part of building healthy habits and a healthy community. Marathon High is a unique after-school training program that empowers and motivates underprivileged teens who otherwise wouldn’t have the coaching, resources or support needed to run the Austin Marathon. By offering middle and high school students access to serious training that helps them push their personal limits, Marathon High shows them that if they put their minds to it and work hard, they can accomplish their goals. In its second year the program changed 81 lives, instilling confidence in kids who otherwise wouldn’t have access to after-school sports.
