is coming in January, thanks to GO! Grant from AMPED!
We are proud to announce that Cherry Crest was one of the fewer than 100 schools in the US chosen to receive the GO! Grant this year from AMPED
, a not-for-profit school-based program which aims to amplify education through daily physical activity.
This enables us to be able to launch our very first recess running club at Cherry Crest, beginning Tuesday, January 14, 2020!
This FREE club will be offered every day at lunch recess (except Wednesdays) at the Cherry Crest track. This is a completely optional activity and students are welcome to join at any time and run or walk as much or as little as they wish! For every mile completed, students will earn a running charm which they can keep! Additional charms and prizes will be awarded at the milestones of 5K (3.1 miles), 10K (6.2 miles), half-marathon (13.1 miles) and marathon (26.2 miles).
1. Sign up your runner
online by Friday, January 10th so we can get your student’s scan card ready for the first day of running club. Paper sign-up forms will also go home with students on Monday January 6th, after winter break.
2. Volunteers, sign up
to help with barcode scanning. Come every day or choose your favorite days, times and classes! Each slot is just 30 minutes, pick a few times or take them all!
Parents and teachers are also welcome to run!
Thank you for supporting the Running Club!
