Kids Run the Nation Grant Recipient Helps McKinney Christian Academy Students

03/06/2012
RRCA: Kids Run the Nation grant recipient, Mustang Marathon Club, helps the children of the McKinney Christian Academy in McKinney, Texas, reach their goal of running a marathon. Elizabeth Stubbs and Liz Mayberry lead the Mustang Marathon Club, which is open to 5th and 6th graders. The children work towards the goal of completing a marathon by running enough laps to do just that. A portion of the grant money was used to purchase "26.2" shirts to give to the children once they reach their marathon goal. As of now, they have twenty active members, and they look for that number to grow. Best of luck and congratulations to the marathon runners! Mustang Marathon Club
