Marathon Consulting the Presenting Sponsor of the 13th CHKD Annual RunWalk For The Kids
Marathon Consulting, LLC, a Coastal Virginia-based provider of Information Technology (IT) and Digital Marketing solutions, is proud to be the presenting sponsor for the 13th Annual RunWalk for the Kids to benefit Children's Hospital of The Kings Daughters. The event took place May 12th with approximately over 1800 participants at the new Waterside Live venue in Downtown Norfolk. The event features 3 races - an 8k Run, 2 Mile Walk, and 1 Mile Fun Run. The funds raised will support CHKD’s Behavioral Health Program.
Lisa Coleman, Executive Director of The King’s Daughters, said, “This year’s 13th annual RunWalk was special on many levels – we were once again able to enjoy collaborating with families, CHKD employees, friends, colleagues, and the community at large to come together in support of CHKD’s Mental Health Program. When The King’s Daughters learned that today more children die from suicide than cancer, cardiovascular disease, birth defects, pneumonia, flu, and chronic lung disease combined, we knew we must take action.” She continued, “The day would not be complete without the company of great friends such as Marathon Consulting, presenting sponsors, as well as local vendors and many other sponsors who generously give so that we may make a difference.”
CHKD is the only facility of its kind in Virginia and serves the medical and surgical needs of children throughout greater Hampton Roads, the Eastern Shore of Virginia, and northeastern North Carolina. The not-for-profit hospital never turns any child away. Last year children made more than 500,000 visits to CHKD caregivers as inpatients and outpatients, for routine and complex illnesses, injuries, and chronic conditions.
