ACCEPT THE CHALLENGE
Welcome to another fantastic year at PSES! As we begin the new school year, we would like to introduce you to the 100 Mile Club.
The 100 Mile Club was carefully developed over 28 years ago and has been the elite school-based program leading the effort in prevention of childhood inactivity and obesity across the nation.
The 100 Mile Club presents students with a straight forward challenge: run, jog, or walk 100 miles over the course of the school year. Along the way, students are rewarded with incentives that motivate them as they strive to reach their next goal. Along with increasing physical activity, the program changes lives by improving readiness to learn, increasing student engagement, and creating a sense of team spirit as we celebrate achievements together, even from a distance.
This fall we will be using the “100 Mile Club TO GO!” plan. It is virtually the same 100 Mile Club program available now for children and families to run while at home. When you sign up here, https://100mileclub.wufoo.com/forms/z1lx9gpj16uymzl/ you will receive mile-tracking downloads right away and your incentive package will ship after September 15, to ensure you are “up and running” in no time! If the link doesn’t work, copy and paste it into a new web browser. Please fill out a separate registration form for each student. Shipping charges will apply since they are shipping directly to you. There is a special discounted registration fee of $10 for any family members that want to join, normally it is $20. There are lots of apps out there that help track miles, two that we recommend are STRAVA and MapMyRun.
Coach Kurt-Mason and Ms. Michele will be your in school motivators and encouragers. We will track your miles at school as well. Our vision is to have Healthy, Happy, Connected kids!
