Due to the success of The Kauai Marathon Youth Running Program and Keiki Run, The Kauai Marathon and Half Marathon is proud to partner with Kauai Coffee, Wilcox Health and rabbit running apparel this year on expanded programs for the 2019 event. The goal of each is to foster a movement to empower Kauai keiki to make healthy lifestyle choices through the sport of running.
The Youth Running Program’s focus for 2019 is on high school students. Race organizers are planning to visit high school cross country teams throughout the island to discuss healthy habits, the power of running, as well as give away goodies from the marathon and rabbit running apparel. They will also share the details of the annual scholarship program so that students will have the opportunity to apply before the August 28th deadline.
Since 2015, the Youth Running Scholarship Program presented by Kauai Coffee has awarded $500 scholarships to one male and one female graduating senior from Kauai. To date, $6,000 has been given to deserving seniors for their performance in the classroom, as well as on the field. This year, the scholarship application is due on Wednesday, August 28th and the check presentation will be at the awards ceremony at The Kauai Marathon and Half Marathon finish line.
