Go The Extra Mile

Will you go the extra mile for Covenant Kids? 
Every year, the community gets moving to support Covenant HealthCare’s pediatric programs and services. Go the Extra Mile for Covenant Kids is an independent fundraising event established by Laura Fiore, a community volunteer, to benefit the Covenant Kids fund managed at Covenant HealthCare Foundation.

This event equips participants with the training they need to finish the race, whether they’re a beginner or advanced runner. It also features pace team leaders, who will assist groups of runners in keeping a steady pace and finishing the race at their desired time. Just like your support for Covenant Kids, we’re here to support you along the way. Because we believe that everyone should embrace a healthy lifestyle for a lifetime.

New this year is a free training program organized by the McDonald GMC Cadillac Pacer Team for Go the Extra Mile for Covenant Kids and sponsored by Dawn of a New Day Coffee House and Cafe.  It's very motivating to run with a pace team and these pacers are experienced marathoners that travel the country doing this.
