Bowie Elementary Success in 3 Mile Race Event

We are members of the Dallas Mayor's Fitness Initiative program, which provides healthy eating courses and physical activity opportunities for our students. At this 5K race event we ran with our school staff and our parents. It was fun and we got plenty of exercise and received medals at the end of the race. We are also actively involved in the 100 Mile Club. Each month we participate in one 3-mile race event to achieve our goal of 60 minutes of activity daily and also to continue earning our miles toward 100. In our after-school running club, we also run a lot and play fun running games.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Students, staff and parents are focused on obtaining 60 minutes or more of physical activity daily. Working together as a team in accomplishing our goal is essential to living a healthy lifestyle.
