Winfree Bryant Middle School began its Marathon in 26 Days program Aug. 27 in support of Run4Water.
Run4Water is a nonprofit organization that strives to raise awareness and provide solutions for the worldwide water crisis. The vision is to empower others to use their talents and abilities to make a difference both locally and globally.
Run4Water sponsors The Marathon in 26 Days which provides area youth the opportunity to run for a purpose. Students can commit to running enough miles to complete a marathon by the end of September. The Marathon in 26 days will culminate as students run the final mile of their “marathon” on Sept. 27 at the Run Around the World Festival held at Winfree Bryant.
