  • M.A.D. Marathon in May

    Do you want to Make A Difference? It starts by taking that first step, then another, and another… until you’ve completed a marathon. Here’s the latest update from the M.A.D. Marathon.

    Want to find our more about the Make A Difference Program? Click here for details. The M.A.D Marathon is coming to Idaho Falls this May.

    People from all over the world and the United States are coming together in one spot, to take part in this very special, life changing event. The MAD marathoners are truly making this a global event. We have people coming from England, Canada, Scandinavia and as far away as New Zealand to take part, it’s going to be a multi-cultural day!

    For most, the M.A.D marathon will be their first ever marathon or half marathon and it will be absolutely amazing to see these wonderful people cross the finish line, knowing they have achieved their goal and best of all, completely changing their lives in the process.

    There’s nothing like witnessing the changes, whether they are big or small, people have made in their lives to participate in this event. Some have stopped smoking, cut out junk food – even chocolate (!!) to get fit for the race. Others have had significant life changing moments, which have encouraged and motivated them to hit the pavement, treadmill, grass or track and start the journey toward making a difference in their own lives and in turn changing the lives of so many others.

    All the money raised from the M.A.D marathon will go to the Olive Osmond Perpetual Hearing Fund to give the gift of hearing to local families that simply can’t afford the hearing help they so desperately need. Not only are local (Idaho Falls) families receiving this gift, but also thousands of men, women and children in Ethiopia.

    So if you want to join me and the rest of the M.A.D marathoners in Idaho Falls in May or to check out what other distances we’ll be running on the day (there’s a 5k, 10k, half and full marathon to choose from) visit:

    There will also be a benefit concert in Idaho Falls, benefiting the Olive Osmond Perpetual Hearing Fund. We are honored to have Merrill Osmond performing the night of May 12th. For more information on the concert and on the Olive Osmond Perpetual Hearing Fund please visit:
