HealthCode’s Marathon in a Month is off to a strong start. So far, about $18,000 has been raised to support about 1 million children impacted by Hurricane Harvey.
HealthCode’s Marathon in a Month™ kicked off October 1, with participants challenged to complete 26.2 miles, 50 miles or 100 miles in the month of October. While there is no fee required to join the challenge, participants can make a donation at registration and support school districts in Houston and along the Gulf Coast in need of relief after Hurricane Harvey.
Steve Amos, executive director of HealthCode, said participants can still sign up to participate in Marathon in a Month.
“There is no penalty for late starts,’’ Amos said. “If participants still want to take the challenge this month, they can log all activity completed as of October 1.”
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 fun way to stay motivated to keep moving.
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.
Several participants have posted their photos with their Marathon in a Month race bib on Twitter or Facebook using the #MarathonIAM hashtag. Here are a few:
