Thursday, October 26, 2017 During the School Day
The Mustang Run & Walk-a-Thon is a fitness event for the entire school. Students and teachers will be training for the run in their PE classes leading up to the big day. On the day of the event, each class will have a scheduled time during the school day to run at least 30 minutes where every lap is tracked and rewarded. All students are encouraged to bring a water bottle; they should wear hats and sunscreen if it’s sunny, or bring rain gear if it’s rainy. Top running students will receive prizes!
While the Mustang Run & Walk-a-Thon is a whole school fitness event, it is also a great way to raise funds for MME. Students who choose to participate are encouraged to collect pledges or donations from friends and family based on the number of laps completed. Students either collect the donations after the run or donations can be made directly online. Top fundraisers will also receive prizes!
MME is excited to partner this year with Apex Fun Run again in 2017 which will bring physical education and character-building curriculum to our students – making this run MORE FUN! Apex Athletes will begin with a school pep rally where your child will bring home their pledge kits and be encouraged to begin collecting pledges to benefit our great school. The Athletes will visit classrooms on campus for two weeks pumping us up for our Mustang Run on October 26th with lessons of UNITED – Together We Are More (U=Unique, N=No Excuses, I=Inspire Others, T=Teachable, E=Empathize, D=Do Your Best)!!
