Physical Activity Participation

We put an article in our school newsletter about our Marathon Kids Running Team. We want to encourage daily exercise and this program does just that. We want to use pedometers to track our steps and get the interest of students in reaching goals of running. Thirty more students than last year have shown interest and the program begins next week.

How did you accomplish your goals?

With last year's shirts, we are starting our running program again. Many parents and students are showing interest in the running club. Now all we need is pedometers to track our steps. Each year we are increasing participation and interest in daily exercise.

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

Weather in the winter time and outside hazards like our neighborhood violence. We will continue our health and wellness activities and push forward to encourage our youth and community to be involved with our schools.
