Pumpkin Run Rocks!

Kristin Lokken,   Elm Creek Elementary School
Physical Activity Participation,  Other
Our entire student body at Elm Creek ran in our 11th annual Pumpkin run Halloween week. The students in each grade level run a predetermined course with a set time chosen for each grade level. If the students complete the running course of ¾ mile within the time frame designated, their name goes into a drawing for a large pumpkin and other fuel up to play 60 prizes. One girl and one boy from each classroom win a pumpkin! Our students look forward to the pumpkin run every year. It has been great fun! Our Fuel Up to Play 60 wellness team members are a huge help with our younger grades. Our success rate this year of students completing the running challenge was 97%! Elm Creek Elementary rocks!

What improvements have you seen at your school?

Our students look forward to the pumpkin run. All of our student population (K-5th grade) participates in this challenge regardless of disabilities. It is awesome. Our school percentage of participation and completion of this event improves every year!
