Marquette Full Meter-thon
"REGISTRATIONS MADE AFTER MONDAY SEPTEMBER 20 ARE NOT GUARANTEED A T-SHIRT"
The Meter-thon is a “thon” for all abilities to benefit the new Lower Harbor Kid’s Cove 2, a PLAYGROUND for all abilities. It’s a great opportunity to gather friends, family & co-workers in what we expect will be a hilarious fun “race” of only 3.28 feet! For everyone who has wanted a marathon t-shirt but didn’t want to run that far... here is your race! This day-long event will be JAM PACKED with live entertainment, family friendly activities and much more. For more information, search “Marquette Full Meter-thon” on Facebook.
Marquette County is home to over 1,600 children with special needs. Because of outdated designs, unsafe conditions and ground coverings not conducive with wheel chairs/walkers, current playgrounds in the area prohibit these children from participating in everyday play, an activity crucial to early childhood development. ENTER “KIDS COVE 2”, an all inclusive park to replace the current design at Lower Harbor. It will be a playground covering the widest spectrum of users and will meet the concepts of Universal Design (UD). This playground will be built so it is simple to use, understandable, and safe for all users. All proceeds from the Marquette Full Meter-thon will go DIRECTLY toward the cost of building Kids Cove 2.
