During the fall and spring, we have a running and walking club that starts every Wednesday morning before school. We have around 80 students from 3rd to 6th grade. We have incentives for students who accumulate the most miles and we encourage healthy food choices for breakfast. A few parents come out as well to join their child and run and walk with or without them. The club has been a success and really motivates students to get out there and compete or just to go out and have fun walking and running with friends.

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

A running club is very easy to establish and keep going. Students are eager for it to begin and disappointed when it ends.
