The first year for the 100 Mile Club is a success! 150 students have signed up for this early morning club. Students show up 3 days a week from 7:25 to 7:45 to walk and/or jog on a designated path. Our 100 Mile Club was sponsored by Lake Regional Health Systems and they supplied rewards when students reach a certain mile-stone (25 miles = water bottle, 50 miles= t-shirt, 100 miles= ear buds!). The students love their time in the morning--not only are they being physically active, but they are also getting a chance to visit with their friends and teachers who participate.

How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?

We are making a walking trail. We will also try to have 100 Mile Club at recess.

How did you accomplish your goals?

I met with administrators and wellness champion and wellness groups.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

Better behavior and more kids looking forward to coming to school in the morning.
