Team IPEF – Kids Marathon
Students ages 5-13 have the chance to set big goals, make healthy choices and represent their school as part of the Annual Naperville Kids Marathon Charity Partner Program. Every student runs 25 miles, one mile at a time, between sign-up and race day and keeps track on an individual mileage log. Students run the final 1.2 miles of their marathon on a portion of the course that will be used by adult runners the following day in the Annual Healthy Driven Half Marathon. Each Team IPEF kids charity runner makes a $26 donation ($1 for every mile). Half of those funds go to the school they represent and the other half helps to support district wide initiatives made possible by the Indian Prairie Educational Foundation.
Team IPEF participated in the inaugural race in 2016 with 385 runners representing the 7 middle schools, 21 elementary schools and preschool in District 204. Participation grew in 2017 with 487 runners involved. Kids Marathon runners have helped raise more than $21,000.
