Kids of Courage's Marathon

Kids of Courage is an extraordinary, unique, non-profit organization that makes dreams come true for children and young adults who are living with serious, debilitating, painful, often life-threatening illnesses, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.

This January, our campers will be on hand with specialized adaptive equipment walking and running alongside us - inspiring us just like they do every day! It's our collective goal to put on display the unexplainable bonds between camper and counselor, to show the world that limits are merely only words, that illness only causes the end goal to be that much sweeter and that our gear is our hearts, which we so proudly wear on our sleeve.

With the help of Kids of Courage, these children have opportunities to enjoy recreational activities outside of the hospital. All services provided are free to the children and families, we firmly believe that these families have enough burdens in their lives without worrying about the finances needed to participate in our activities.                                                                                
                                                                                                 . Kids of Courage leaves the families that they serve at home to rest up and catch their breaths while their child has the time of their life.
