I'm honoring my dad, Coach Tim Georg, by fundraising to honor his career as a coach to high school and middle school student-athletes as a part of the Marathon Kids, "Honor Your Coach" campaign.

Marathon Kids provides coaches with free, first-class technology and tools that enhance kids’ experience on the track, field, and gym. Your dollars help bring the right tools and technology to make our coaches successful and to support their athletes to be active and healthy for a lifetime.

Why do Coaches Matter?

  • Coaches are teachers, leaders, and motivators. They are our kids' first line of defense when it comes to believing in themselves. 
  • Coaches make life fun! They know when to work hard and when to play hard and more importantly, how to do both at the same time!

The above description fits my father perfectly. He was a hard-working teacher, leader, and motivator that makes life fun. He's not a bad cook either. 

Coach Georg, as he is often referred to, impacted and influenced thousands of kids during his 42-year career as a teacher and coach in Houston and Central Texas area high schools and middle schools.

Coach Georg served in multiple positions and capacities at the following schools during his career:

1974-77 - Dayton High School - Dayton, TX

1977-86: Navarro High School - Geronimo, TX

1986-96: San Marcos High School - San Marcos, TX

1996-98: Travis High School - Austin, TX

1998-2003: LBJ High School - Austin, TX

2003-08: San Marcos Baptist Academy - San Marcos, TX

2008-2014: Marion High School - Marion, TX

2014-17: Seguin High School - Seguin, TX

Please consider making a donation to honor Coach Georg or any other Coach that has made a positive impact on your life to help Marathon Kids support the next generation of coaches and kids that will lead the world.

Why in honor of a coach? Coaches are the cornerstone of our programming. When you give to Marathon Kids, you're ultimately funding our coaches. Marathon Kids is a volunteer-led coaching model that combines technology and goal-setting to increase kids’ motivation to be active and improve athletic self-perception. Your dollars bring the right tools and technology to make our coaches successful in teaching kids how being active every day improves their entire well-being.

How do our coaches make an impact?  When children are given positive physical activity experiences early in their life, they are six times more likely to adopt a long-term healthy lifestyle. That's why programs like Marathon Kids are urgently needed to combat the youth inactivity crisis and support the well-being of all children.

Our Marathon Kids Coaches are proof that coaches everywhere make a difference. 

  • Coach Zertuche from Yarbrough Elementary School credits his football coach for teaching him how to push through challenges and work hard. Coach Zertuche uses the same lessons with his kids by "helping them find that thing that motivates" them and showing them that they can "accomplish anything they put their minds to." 
  • Coach Spelman from Baldwin Elementary, says her PE and Soccer Coach was her reason for becoming a coach herself. "She was always cheering us on. She cared about each and every one of us. She was always going the extra mile for us. I make it a point to let all of my students know how much I care for them. I know how good that made me feel knowing my coach cared for me, so I want my students to feel that too."
