Rite Aid Foundation Sponsors Marathon Kids Closing Ceremony

When: Thursday, June 7

Where: Baltimore, MD

The Rite Aid Foundation sponsored the 2012 Marathon Kids program in the Baltimore, MD, area this school year.  The program encourages elementary school children to complete a marathon in increments throughout the school year.  The Foundation’s sponsorship made the program free of charge for students, their families and the local school district.

The foundation sponsorship also gives Rite Aid associates the opportunity to support a worthy cause in their local community.  More than two dozen associates attended the Final Lap Ceremony in Baltimore, handing out completion medals and bottled water to hundreds of students as they completed their final lap around the track at a local high school.
