|Alexander was a Mighty Miler today!|
Today 1,000 or so New York City school children came to race in the 13th annual Run with Champions, an event that will help kick off the New York City Marathon on Sunday. Run for Champions is a NY Road Runners – they host the NYC Marathon – youth program. Our Mighty Miler had a blast in the event!
The Mighty Milers is the New York Road Runners Foundation’s running program for the schools, promoting physical fitness to children during the school day. The NYRRF works with the New York City Public School system in order to implement the running program.
ING Run For Something Better sponsors free, school-based running fitness programs. By awarding grants ING Run For Something Better’s nonprofit program introduces kids to the benefits of running, physical fitness and healthy lifestyle choices, and makes it fun and rewarding for them, too.
