Piney Point Running Club

This is our fourth year with Marathon Kids and we have been getting more and more support from the staff and community each year. We are the largest running club in Houston ISD and this is due in large part to being the largest elementary school with over 1100 students. We have also been sponsored by Nike, which is greatly appreciated by our students.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Piney Point has been very supportive throughout the years we have participated in Marathon Kids. Our parents have come out to support us at the sponsored events by transporting kids, taking pictures, encouraging the kids and through coming to the school to help monitor student success. Our staff has also been a great inspiration to me. They have allowed kids to run during recess at our Spark Park and promoted the program throughout the year in their classrooms.
