Remembering Harold W. (Bill) Kohl III, PhD

The Marathon Kids family is deeply saddened to learn of Dr. Harold (Bill) Kohl’s passing. Bill was a long-time Marathon Kids board member and our science and research committee leader. He brought incredible knowledge and expertise to our work and a sense of humor and wit that we always appreciated.

"You could not help but love Bill Kohl, a brilliant scientist with a gentle way of asking important questions. He dedicated his life to helping kids become active healthy adults and I am honored to have worked with him for so many years.” Cami Hawkins, Marathon Kids Board Member and Former CEO

Bill shepherded many projects over the years, establishing the great purpose and need for bringing solid evidence-based programming like Marathon Kids to schools and after-school programs. We will miss Bill and send our deep condolences to his family.
