Ronald McDonald House Charities Kids’ Gusher Marathon Club
RMHC BMT Vertical Logo-1

The Exygon and Baptist Hospitals Gusher Marathon, Exxpress Mart Half-Marathon, and Kinsel Ford 5K has implemented a wellness initiative in schools called the Kids Marathon Club. Participating students log 23 miles of exercise between now and March 3, 2017. Then, the students complete the Kinsel Ford 5K on March 4, 2017 and become marathon finishers. We will present the students with special marathon finisher’s medals at an awards ceremony at Gladys City Spindletop later in the month.
The following is an introductory letter that can be shared with schools and groups. You can download a copy of the program:

Letters to Others

This is an inspirational program to take your letters about a medical condition that motivated you to “keep going” during the hard times of your training or Gusher Marathon, Half Marathon, or 5K run. We will then present the letters anonymously to an individual with a similar condition along with a Gusher Marathon medal. The plan is to show empathy and to inspire a complete stranger. Can you take the time to inspire a stranger going through a difficulty?
