26.2 miles...One Mile at a Time
Those kids who joined us last year know what it’s all about and had a blast! This year the program will
be an even bigger and better experience. There will be more Group Fun Runs, more games and more
opportunities to learn and experience the sport of running in a fun supportive environment.
The CASA Kane County Fox Valley KIDS’ Marathon is open to all kids who will be ages 5 through 13 on race day, Saturday, September 20, 2014.
The Fox Valley Marathon is VERY honored and pleased to announce our 2014 Sponsor, CASA KANE COUNTY. CASA Kane County is a nonprofit, volunteer organization that advocates for the best interests of abused and neglected children within the Juvenile Court system. Court Appointed Special Advocate/Guardian volunteers are ordinary people doing extraordinary things to serve over 500 children in our abuse/neglect and probate courts each year. CASA volunteers are everyday citizens appointed by judges to advocate for the safety and well-being of children who have been removed from their homes due to parental abuse and neglect. They stand up for our children and make a difference one child at a time. This is a program that fits in well with our philosophy at the Fox Valley Marathon. We believe that we can make a difference in a child’s health and wellness with participation in our program. One child at a time…..and in our case…running one mile at a time to improved fitness and grow up into a healthy active adult!
