The East Middle Speedsters!
This year we used our funds to begin a Marathon Kids program. Students meet twice a week and jog/walk 1-3 miles. Our goal is for our students to complete the equivalent of 4 marathons! Students were also invited to attend local Fun Runs. East Middle students have already earned several medals for placing in the Gary Mintz Pancake Run.

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

We want our students to take ownership of their wellness. To accomplish that, constantly seek out local Fun Runs for the students to participate in.

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

A challenge we face is cold weather. To overcome that we simply run indoors. Twelve passes in our hallway equals a mile!
