STUDENTS IN IT FOR THE LONG RUN
We challenge at-risk teenagers in NE Florida to run a 13.1 mile half-marathon while experiencing and learning the benefits of goal setting, self-respect, leadership, teamwork, improved health, and commitment week after week for four months.
"When I first walked in to the Marathon High meeting three years ago, I thought I was getting an after-school activity and nothing more. But instead, I stumbled upon one of the greatest accomplishments in my high school career as well as the place where my character developed and where I learned to love myself and the world around me." ~MH student
