Get Our Youth Moving Marathon
The students at Highlands Elementary School are running a marathon!
We are teaming up with the Delaware Running Festival to create healthy habits by making better choices. Students will be participating in the Get our Youth Moving Marathon.
Starting the week of March 18th, students will log 20 minutes, the equivalent of ½ mile, of exercise every day. They will bring those log books to their teachers, who will reward them with a variety of motivators. For seven weeks, students will accumulate the miles until they reach 25 miles.
On May 11th, we will be heading to the waterfront and taking over the Delaware Marathon facilities where we will finish our marathon. We will take place in a 1.2 mile fun run. At the finish, there will be medals, t-shirts, food, prizes, and so much more! There may even be a visit from the King and Queen of Sweden!
