This year too, ISR was finely represented at the METRO Marathon via our runners and our bright yellow American school bus. Around 20 ISR students successfully competed in the Kids Cup and performed outstandingly well. We are very proud of our youngest marathon enthusiasts and can't wait for them to embark on their first marathon relay race.
