Physical Activity Participation
We offer a program for our students called Marathon Kids. They keep track of how far they walk/run, and when they reach 26.2 miles, they get a small prize. Some kids finish multiple "marathons" throughout the school year. They can use distances they have run/walked at home, or during after school times designated for the Marathon Kids to participate.

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

The kids are motivated to reach the goal of running/walking the distance of a marathon. The prizes also motivate the students. We hope to continue to offer this program each year, and make exercise a habit the kids enjoy throughout their lives.
