Race Day!
This is Edinburg's 35 Annual 10K/2Mile Run, we have been participating in this event for many years. Our school partners up with our community and participates in the Annual 10K/2Mile fun run. At our school we register over 600+ faculty, staff, students and parents. We all get together as a community and run/walk the race. This activity is an extension of our school Fit Club at Jefferson Elementary.

How did you accomplish your goals?

Our goal is to keep our students excited about running throughout the school year. We make a big deal about a fieldtrip that they get as a reward for participating at the end of the year. They get excited because everyone wants to participate.

What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?

Keeping track of all the 600+ participants and distributing shirts and bibs for the race.
