Macdonough School students and teachers participated in this weekend’s Hartford Marathon festival.
Today, our new physical education teacher, Mrs. Oszurek, brought a group of 4th and 5th grade students to Hartford to participate in the ING Run for Something Better Program.
Macdonough students have been training at home and school to run 12 miles during the past month. They each ran their last 1.1 "Final Mile", to cross over the official ING Hartford Marathon Finish Line in Hartford's Bushnell Park, receive a Finisher's Medal and then enter the "World of Fitness” area.
The World of Fitness area contains exhibits and activities which focus on promoting healthy choices for kids. Presenters include the Hartford Wolfpack, the Connecticut Science Museum, the Hartford YMCA, and more!
