Macdonough School Invited to Run for Something Better Day!
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 14, 2011, 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 our fabulous fifth grade teachers, Mr. Nelson, Miss Weindruch, and Mrs. Paul, for coordinating the event!
