McCoy Running Club
This is the 6th year I've been involved with Marathon Kids, which has now partnered with Nike. I have a weekly running club where Kindergarten through third graders come to participate in running activities and games. They keep track of their miles/laps on a mileage log and earn their rewards for every 26.2 miles walked/run. This club gives them the chance to increase their endurance and also do better on the 30 minute running challenge, which is something all students participate in during PE classes. They are so motivated by the incentives Nike has to offer and also by seeing their friends and getting to run together.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

The running club has helped those students realize the importance of lifetime sports and staying physically active. It has also helped them with their 30 minute running challenge.
