Incremental Marathon Benefits Students, Families

Exercise improves physical health, concentration and behavior among students and adults with autism — and those without. That’s why Linden Grove School is grateful to the Cincinnati Flying Pig Marathon and Cincinnati Children’s for the “oink”remental Kids Marathon and 26th Mile Event.

As participants in the 26th Mile Event, LGS students and family members completed the first 25 miles of the “oink”remental marathon before the Flying Pig weekend, charting their progress on an illustrated map of the marathon’s route. Then, on event weekend, they ran or walked their 26th mile and crossed the finish “swine” collecting all the swag of a marathoner including shirt, medal and finisher’s treats.

LGS students and family members looking for a greater challenge participated in the Flying Pig’s 5k held on the same weekend.

Congratulations to all students and adults on your accomplishments!
