Students from Macdonough School have been
invited to participate in the 2012 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.
program encourages students to train to complete a half marathon, covering 13.1
miles in 6 weeks. On Friday October 12th, 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 Miss Weindruch, and Mrs. Ellis for coordinating the
event for our students!
