Kids of Courage is excited to announce

our second annual  Marathon run!

On Sunday, January 20th, 2013 Kids of Courage is taking its talents slightly south east of South Beach to participate in the Sunshine Insurance marathon and half-marathon, on the beautiful island of Nassau in the Bahamas! The race is beautiful and the weather is perfect, but we need you to help us put it all together.  

Come join us for a fun, uplifting, relaxing and challenging 3 days, from January 17th to 20th, all while getting away for an amazing winter weekend on the pristine Nassau Paradise Island. If you meet our minimum fundraising goal you will be entitled to participate in this weekend free of charge. This amazing package includes the following (with more to follow):

  • 3 Nights at a Five Star Hotel in the Bahamas
  • A seat on our group flight (details to follow)
  • Fully catered weekend 
  • A spot in the marathon, or half marathon on Sunday 
  • Exclusive access to our professional coach for training guidance
  • A special KOC running shirt & many more goodies

Those who need to fly at a different time are, of course, welcome to. Please contact us for details.

In Kids of Courage fashion, the weekend will feature our campers – as guests and participants in the race! 

K.O.C.’s campers truly are limitless

Yes, we are bound to struggle in our training. Yes, we will push our muscles to do things that they scream at us not to. And yes, we will wonder how we’ll ever finish what we started.


So, what is the secret to persevere?

Knowing that you will see the face of a smiling child as he or she is being pushed in a wheelchair by a brave volunteer, as we all Race for Courage. That image will give us the energy to reach our goal.

The weekend will provide the world a peek inside our world: Kids of Courage’s world.

As we race towards one goal, we understand that time is of the essence. That is why we are here for each & every runner; all day, every day. We will provide all registrants with online coaching and will answer any and all of your racing questions.

Register today at


to reserve your spot & shock the world. We will help you easily set up your own personal web page where friends and family can donate and support your cause. We will also provide you with an email that you can easily forward to your friends alerting them of your quest. Monies raised will fund Kids of Courage programs, events and adventures throughout the year!


As always there are no salaries or compensation within the organization (even the people who are organizing the marathon are volunteers) so 100% of your monies will go directly to our program and our kids.

Register & agree to raise a minimum fundraising goal of $3600 by race-day because together, and only together, can we do this.

Looking forward to seeing you all there!
