2017 MicroMarathon – Cancelled

So sorry everyone. We will NOT be having a Micromarathon 2.62 on January 1, 2017.

Organizing the event is a personal effort with the help of friends and family. Due to our schedule and commitments, we are not able to have the time to coordinate the race. We appreciate all your support.

Did you know:

  • there are 8,700 kids in Oregon Foster care
  • kids in Foster care can spend up to 1.5 hours (one way) in transportation
  • these vehicles do not have any entertainment systems

Our plan:

  • Provide money to equip the DHS vehicles with ipads, or similar devices
  • Provide movies, games & entertainment
  • Starting with the Clackamas County and Tri County, with plans for future counties as funds are available.

Why:

  • Kids are often in the vehicles for up to 1.5 hours each way (not including unexpected traffic & congestion)
  • Provides entertainment / distraction
  • Easier for drivers to concentrate
  • Fun & learning!
