Mccollom Girls on the Run
We started a Girls on the Run program for 3rd-5th graders at our school. The girls meet after school and we practice running a mile. We just ran our half marathon here in Wichita at the Prairie Fire Marathon. The girls get to pick one of their family members to run with them and then they did the Marathon with their family member. It has been a great success!

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Amazing! They worked great together.

How did you accomplish your goals?

Got the parents involved!

What improvements have you seen at your school?

This program has helped my girls get involved in physical activities outside of school.
