Kids’ Fun Run
Last month more than 1,420 students in grades K-5 joined the Get Ready to Run Kids’ One-Mile Fun Run, presented by Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Mississippi.
The Get Ready to Run School Program introduces students to the benefits of running, physical fitness and establishing healthy habits.
To encourage friendly competition among schools and further reward participation on race day, the top three schools with the highest percentage of fun run runners will receive up to $2,000 for their schools’ P.E. programs! Schools were also encouraged to document their participation and success by preparing a Story Board. The school with the best message will receive a $500 award for their school’s P.E. program.
Congratulations to the winners!
1st Place – Davis Magnet School – $2,000
2nd Place – Highland Elementary – $1,500
3rd Place – Madison Crossing Elementary – $1,000
Story Board Winner – Linwood Elementary – $500
