Community Foundation


The LifeSouth Community Foundation promotes wellness through:

Kids Marathons

These events encourage long-term fitness and goal achievement. Students in grades K-8 are encouraged to participate in “morning mile” program, or walk/run with their family members. During a school year, students track their mileage in increments, with the goal of running or walking 25 miles. On race day, kids complete a final 1.2 mile course and finish their marathon journey! All participants get free T-shirts, medals, food and beverages, and other rewards for adopting a healthy lifestyle.
