KEMPNER — Amanda Capella has been getting more than just exercise this summer while participating in the Marathon Kids Walk and Talk program with her children.

“We love this program during the summer,” Capella said as she and her children strolled through Kempner’s Sylvia Tucker Memorial Park in late July. “It’s been so nice to get them (her children) a break from technology and get us out of the house every day...and I’m not sure how the conversation topics originated, but I love them.”
