Texas Gov. Greg Abbott cheered on Marathon in a Month participants as they stepped out this month for Hurricane Harvey.
“As Governor of Texas, it is my pleasure to extend greetings to everyone participating in HealthCode’s Marathon in a Month,’’ Abbott said in a proclamation recognizing the challenge that kicked off October 1.
“I applaud HealthCode for promoting physical fitness and helping to make Texas a healthier place to live. I would also like to comment your organization for its contributions to support kids and school districts impacted by Hurricane Harvey. Your efforts highlight the best of the Lone Star State,’’ Abbott said.
HealthCode’s Marathon in a Month™ kicked off on October 1, with participants challenged to complete 26.2 miles, 50 miles or 100 miles in the month. While there is no fee required to join the challenge, participants can donate 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.
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 remain motivated to keep moving.
Participants can sign up on the registration page at https://millionmilemonth.org/events and make a voluntary tax-deductible donation to support Hurricane Harvey relief.
