Have you signed up for We Run the World presented by Academy Sports + Outdoors? It’s a free virtual relay during the month of September, hosted by Marathon Kids. Everyone is invited to join in the fun—it’s not too late to make your September miles count!
Our family has made a commitment to participate in We Run the World, presented by Academy Sports + Outdoors as a way to reset our lifestyle and habits. Once Covid hit and quarantine started, all of our group sports and exercise options came to a halt. We try exercising at home, but most days we fall short. My kids are sitting and staring at computer screens for more hours of the day than they are moving their bodies, which worries me. What can I do to make a healthy, impactful change?
Enter We Run the World presented by Academy Sports + Outdoors. This fun and exiting challenge is a way for our family to get up and stay active while joining people all around the country to run around the world! How cool is that?! While we are not runners, we have decided this would be a perfect time to walk/jog our way up to becoming better at running.
One of the best parts about signing up is that by joining, we are helping to support the future of Marathon Kids, keeping their programming free and available to all kids. We are doing good for our bodies while doing good for others as well! It’s a win-win!
Now, more than ever, we could all use the mental, emotional, and physical health benefits of moving more and keeping active. Covid and quarantine have definitely taken their toll on our family’s spirit and motivation. We are excited to have this challenge spark new life into our daily routine!
The Leaderboard helps you track your progress (you can sync your fitness trackers as well). While joining is free, you can score tee shirts with a $35 donation.
Join us as we help make the future a better place for our kids. It’s up to us to keep things moving in a positive direction during these crazy times. Sign up here!
