Running For Goals
- Jackie Macias, Houston Elementary School
- Physical Activity Participation
This is my 5th year doing running club at my campus and every year I lose more than half of my students, because they get tired of just running. This year, I started out with 40 and am now at 32 still running because of Marathon Kids. The students get excited about receiving their prizes for completing their marathons. My students run 75+ minutes a week and some have even gotten their family members involved in walking or running so they can add to their marathon trackers. I plan to make this better next year, and will try to incorporate it into our PE Classes.
