- Physical Activity Participation
Hays-Porter students participated in the Flying Pig Marathon in Ohio. The Fuel Up to Play 60 participants participated in healthy activity sessions 6 weeks before the race, in which they learned to eat right and began conditioning for the race. The students received a goodie bag and a medal at the completion of the race. They also shared their experience with other students, staff, and community members and talked about how running the marathon was a great way to fuel up!
How did students and adults work together as a team?
Students encouraged their parents and other staff members to participate in the marathon, promoting good exercise and great health.
