This spring our school participated in the Get Ready to Run School Program, presented by Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Mississippi. The Get Ready to Run School Program introduced students in grades K-5 to the benefits of running, physical fitness and healthy lifestyle choices in a fun and rewarding way! Students learned about proper running form, nutrition, healthy goal setting and more during regularly scheduled P.E. classes. The Get Ready to Run School Program began on January 16, 2018. Students who completed the school program were eligible to register for and participate in the Get Ready to Run Kids’ One-Mile Fun Run on Saturday, April 28, 2018, at no cost. All registered runners received a Get Ready to Run participant t-shirt and race packet, and each child was presented with a finisher medal as he or she crossed the finish line.
