Blue Mile

Taylor Bowie,   Monroe Elementary School
Community Involvement,  Physical Activity Participation
At my school, we are part of the Kidstrider Program. When my students walk around our track, they have a lap card. Once that lap card is full, they earn a little plastic foot. It can be worn on a necklace or on their shoes. If they go 30 miles, they will be entered into the Grand Blue Mile at Drake. This is during the Drake Relays.

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

Teaming up with the Kidstrider Program and working together to make these opportunities open to all students.

How did you accomplish your goals?

Working with the Des Moines school district and the head of our PE department

What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?

Finding a way to get the students the cards, so everyday they have an opportunity to earn laps.
