Healthy Kids Running Club
- Sara Rich, Roosevelt School
- Physical Activity Participation
Our school promoted the Healthy Kids Club this past school year. On Wednesday mornings and afternoons, students in grades K-5 were offered the opportunity to come an hour before school (K-2) or stay an hour after school (3-5) to participate in additional physical activities. The students would all warm up together by stretching, followed by jogging/running/walking. They also participated in many different activities and games that would provide physical activity. All of the students that were in the Healthy Kids Club also participated in the 100 Mile Club. They would track how many miles they jogged/ran/walked each week. Over the period of 17 different meetings of this club, the K-2 grade students ran over 112 miles and the 3-5 grade students ran over 248 miles!
