Getting Our Run ON!!!
Our FUTP 60 students took on the challenge of running the length of a marathon. They put a team together and recruited their friends to take part in a run club after school. The school was able to provide the students with a healthy snack to fuel them up for their run!

How did you accomplish your goals?

We were able to accomplish our goals by encouraging students to take part in physical activity. Also, with the help of the food service staff at the school, we were able to bring in the nutrition component to the club. This helped students to understand the relationship between what they put into their bodies affects how their bodies function. Since the program has been such a success, we hope to continue promoting it year after year.
