It’s kickoff time! For Kids of Courage, supporting sick children and their families is their core mission. With amazing trips, community events, electrifying weekends, and the greatest team through it all, K.O.C. does what it takes to bring kids joy and adventure, no matter the diagnosis. As K.O.C. celebrates their 10th year, the organization laces up for another action-packed marathon weekend in Miami Beach, Florida.

It’s their 8th year running, walking, and rolling through the marathon, and you can already feel the excitement! On Sunday, January 27, 2019, Kids of Courage will join thousands of individuals and teams at the Fitbit Miami Marathon and Half Marathon, as part of a fun, inspiring, and courageous weekend. The funds raised to compete with Race for Courage will go toward an organization that creates bright smiles and incredible experiences for seriously ill children—and will turn their dreams into reality, mile by mile.

Runners and walkers from across the country will come together with K.O.C. and Team Courage for a 4-day/3-night stay at a 5-star luxury hotel on the beautiful beaches of Miami, stepping off their flight and into custom K.O.C. gear. The fully catered weekend includes all meals, an uplifting Shabbos experience, K.O.C.’s famous pre-race pasta party, victory party, admission to the marathon or half-marathon, and the opportunity to meet their courageous campers and dedicated volunteers.

“It’s bound to be our biggest year yet,” says Howie Kafka, co-founder of Kids of Courage, “with over 100 people joining the Race for Courage team, we are thrilled to see the sense of community that will take place!”

Along with the Miami air, your participation in this wonderful event will warm the hearts of Couragers even before the start line. Get a head start and register today at for the experience of a lifetime.
