Marathon Kids Coach

“I recently went to an Ambassador Training… and I felt like I had been to camp. I was pumped, energized, encouraged, and ready to get back to my own kids and start back up with our MK Run Club. I left equipped to better our MK program, and that’s saying a lot since our students did amazing last school year. I look forward to many more years with this group of great coaches!”
