It’s time to step out and support students devastated by Hurricane Harvey.
HealthCode’s Marathon in a Month™ kicks off October 1, with participants challenged to complete 26 miles, 50 miles or 100 miles in the month of October. While there is no fee required to join the challenge, participants have the opportunity to make a donation at registration and support school districts in Houston and along the Gulf Coast in need of relief after Hurricane Harvey.
“More than 1 million students in 244 school districts were affected by Hurricane Harvey,’’ said Steve Amos, executive director of HealthCode. “HealthCode is committed to empowering people to live happy, healthy lives. Unfortunately, right now there are too many people who are in a world of hurt on the Gulf Coast. HealthCode is encouraging everyone to step out and support those rebuilding in Hurricane Harvey’s wake.’’
Whether it is looking for a new weight loss or fitness challenge or a desire to get out and move with friends or co-workers, Marathon in a Month participants have a new, fun way to stay motivated to keep moving. Registration for Marathon in a Month is currently underway. Participants can sign up on the registration page at https://millionmilemonth.org/marathon2017 and make a voluntary tax-deductible donation to support Hurricane Harvey relief.
Participants who post their photos with their Marathon in a Month race bib on Twitter or Facebook using the #MarathonIAM hashtag will receive a chance to win prizes.
Now, it is off to the races.
