Physical Activity Participation,  Teamwork

Upon opening our brand new school in Frisco, TX, one of our top physical education priorities was to start a run club that could help reinforce the value of cardio-aerobic exercise. The Miller Marathoners Run Club consists of 3rd, 4th, and 5th Graders who meet weekly after school as part of the 100 Mile Club. To date we have already grown to over 50 members that average 3 miles per session! The future is very bright for the Miller Marathoners as we will continue to add members and events to the calendar!

How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?

Our goal is to track 100 miles by the end of the school year in order to receive a GOLD medal! We created a bulletin board displaying all the running shoes and showing as they track their miles to achieve their ultimate goal. We will continue to add on miles each school year. We are also adding a community 5K race to run as a team to celebrate our running achievements.
