This morning, students in Kindergarten through 5th grade were excited to learn about the 2012 Flying Pig Kids’Marathon. In collaboration with PTA, I have decided to bring this opportunity into Amelia in order to promote fitness, fun and healthy food choices.
The goal is to walk, jog or run the distance of a marathon (26.2 miles) in the months leading up to the Cincinnati Flying Pig Marathon in May. Each student will receive a “HOG LOG” to be used to track each mile completed towards the marathon goal. Miles will be done at school during recess or can be done with family and/or friends. Always pick a safe place and never go out alone.
Students can complete the marathon distance by completing the final mile as part of the Cincinnati Flying Pig Kids’ Marathon26th-Mile Event on Saturday, May 5, 2012. Experience the thrill of victory by crossing over the actual Flying Pig Marathon finish line. All registered participants ($10.00 registration fee) will receive a finisher’s medal and a t-shirt for a job well done.
