2500 Students Run Marathon

Over 2500 students participated in this year's Mayor Neil O'Leary's Waterbury Kids Marathon program, running short distances each week that added up to the full marathon distance by the end of the program. The culminating activity took place on June 1st, with students parading to a starting line in front of City Hall and running a little over a mile through downtown streets back to Library Park, where they had a healthy snack and water. Mayor O'Leary was on hand to personally encourage students in their endeavors, including this group from Bucks Hill School.
