Ms. Hubbard, KACP’s Assistant Principal writes about how Marathon High made an impact at her school. 

Marathon High has been an amazing addition to KACP’s after school programs.  From the first day that Marathon High was on campus to present and recruit students, there was immediate excitement.  I’m pretty sure we had close to 150 students show up for the first practice!  The students who stuck with Marathon High (committed to both long and short runs) learned a lot about team, hard work, tenacity and success.  Our students had so much pride in their participation and sharing with other students and teachers that they completed a marathon.  Not only did students show a ton of commitment and hard work, but they also “got fit” before our very eyes.  It was awesome to see students getting in shape and taking care of their bodies in preparation for the marathon ahead.  I look forward to continue working with Marathon High.
