We started an after school program to train and motivate students to run. We have over 80 kids involved in grades K to 2. We are teaching students the fundamentals of running, proper form and running to build stamina.The program is organized and operated with the help of volunteer teachers and parents.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Students workout and run with teachers and parents. The students enjoy being with the volunteer staff. We even have our principals training and running. The staff also has a team running the Pittsburgh Marathon Relay.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

We have seen children excited about running. We have doubled the enrollment in one year. Students have become better runners because they have been taught proper form.
