The Kauai Marathon Youth Running Program, (TKMYRP) presented by Kauai Coffee was initiated by Kauai Marathon and Half Marathon multi year champion and course record holder, Tyler McCandless in 2013 as an avenue to give back to the community who has made such an impact on his personal and professional life.
The focus of the program was to make a positive difference with the youth of Kauai by educating students on the benefits of healthy choices both in nutrition and exercise while promoting health and happiness. In the first year, Tyler worked with The Kauai Marathon staff in developing a program involving elementary and high school youth through classroom and school assembly presentations on the effects of exercise and nutrition on mental and physical health.
Building on the successes of the 2013 program, Tyler returned in early August of 2014 and started a mentorship program involving high school students and fifth graders from Kalaheo, Koloa and Island Schools. The mentorship program brings the youth together with their mentors for monthly runs throughout the year with a presentation each week focused on making healthy lifestyle choices. Additionally, Tyler enlisted Dr. Chris Marchioini, the executive director of the non-profit Healthy Learning Paths to build upon the impact of the school presentations. Tyler and Chris taught together in the classrooms, giving the students both a medical doctor and a role-model athlete as their teacher for a classroom period on the benefits of exercise, nutrition, and sleep.
