Hickerson Rocked that Race!

- Teamwork, Success with Funds, Community Involvement, Physical Activity Participation
Our running club trained and participated in a 5k hosted by another elementary school in our district this spring. We had several students that had never done anything like that before. We even had a group of teachers participate in the 5k too!
How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?
I am the school nurse at Hickerson Elementary. A few teachers and I are going to continue meeting with students after school once a week for running club. We plan on participating in the same 5k next year and maybe even another one sooner (this coming fall).
What improvements have you seen at your school?
I have witnessed several students get so excited about running. Many of the children did not seem very excited about training for the 5k, but once we actually participated they were so excited and proud of themselves for completing it.
