Marathon Consulting Sponsors CHKD 7th Annual RunWalk For The Kids
Marathon Consulting, LLC, a Virginia Beach-based provider of Information Technology solutions, sponsored the CHKD 7th Annual RunWalk for the Kids. The event, held on June 16th, 2012, took place in downtown Norfolk and featured 4 races, including an 8k Run, 2 Mile Walk, and 1 Mile Fun Run. This year's event saw almost 3,000 participants and 145 teams, with more than $100,000 raised for CHKD. Funds raised from the event support CHKD and its special programs for children. Marathon employees and family members created Team Marathon, raising over $1,700 for CHKD.
Tony Cortinas, a partner at Marathon Consulting, said, "We were happy to increase our participation in the RunWalk For the Kids this year. CHKD is a great organization and has touched the lives of so many people in our area and beyond."
"We cannot put on an event like RunWalk for the Kids without the support of businesses like Marathon Consulting," said Lisa Coleman, Executive Director of The King's Daughters. "The funds raised are vital to CHKD in helping to make a difference in the lives of children," she continued.
