MORNING MARATHON CLUB 2019
Students, staff, families and friends are invited to join the fun as we begin the 9th Annual Morning Marathon Club (MMC)! We will meet 7:10-7:40a.m., Mondays through Thursdays on the high school track to walk/jog/run supervised ¼ mile laps. Due to weather delays, our first day will be April 8, 2019. We will NOT meet April 22, due to no school on that day. Our last day will be May 16, 2019.
*****DEADLINE FOR Panhandle GOTR 5K/Fun Run is Friday, April 12, 2019*****
Must register ONLINE at https://fs12.formsite.com/GOTRNebraska/Chadron_5K/index.html by APRIL 12, to guarantee t-shirts for all participants and medals for those under 14. EVERYONE UNDER 16, MUST have Run Buddy.)
The goal of this program is to give each participant a positive start to the day, establish a routine of exercise and live a healthy lifestyle. This will help them build confidence and self-esteem that comes from setting goals and crossing the finish line. It is also a great opportunity to talk to your child about setting personal goals: what/how many days will they participate? How many laps do they want to complete? Lace up those running shoes and let’s get moving!
The first day each student participates, s/he must have a signed permission form. If you would like your child to be eligible for prizes, choose a package and please return attached form with check (made out to Chadron Public Schools) as soon as possible. Last day to order will be Friday, April 12, 2019. All MMC gear will be handed out as soon as we get them. **New design and color (black/silver)
