Steve Kowalski, a grade school teacher in Michigan, ran the NYC Marathon in 2016 in support of Companions

in Courage Foundation. His students and the community supported him in such a warm way, he decided to up the ante in 2021.

Kowalski will attempt to run a “Hat Trick” of marathons this year in support of the children’s charity. The marathons are:  North Country in Manistee, MI (August 8), Virtual Boston Marathon (October 11) and the Cleveland Marathon (October 24).
