Students from Macdonough School have been invited to participate in the 2011 ING Run for Something Better Day program at Bushnell Park in Hartford. The program is designed to encourage a healthy, active lifestyle in the fight against childhood obesity for elementary and middle school students.
This program encourages students to train to complete a half marathon, covering 13.1 miles in 6 weeks. On Friday October 14th, students who complete 12 miles through the school program will run their last 1.1 "Final Mile", cross over the official ING Hartford Marathon Finish Line, receive a Finisher's Medal and then enter the "World of Fitness” area.
Thanks to Mr. Nelson, Miss Weindruch, and Mrs. Paul for coordinating the event for our fifth grade students!
