Middle School Milersgo_webmaster
GO! St. Louis Middle School Milers was created in 2014 to meet the needs of students in grades 6 – 8, who are at an in-between period where fitness can have a big impact on not just their physical health, but their overall outlook. Many schools may not have a developed sports program but a running/walking enrichment program may provide an energy outlet for students.
Students will follow a 9-week training program with a goal of running/walking the GO! St. Louis 5K on April 8, 2017. In addition to developing physical fitness skills, a nutrition component will be introduced to encourage a healthy lifestyle. Students will maintain a log and they will record their 1 mile times so that they can monitor their progress. Further, students will participate in a school/community service project.
We encourage these students to challenge their parents to train with their son/daughter and to commit in joining them in the 5K event. Often times, it is the child who inspires their parents to lead a healthy lifestyle.
