Every year, Davidson Elementary students join in a year-long program of running during recess, hoping to achieve a total of 10 kilometers or even a marathon. The goal is promoting fitness, and the kickoff every September has become a real community event. This year’s start on Thursday, Sept. 29, brought hundreds of kids and family members out to McEver Fields, across South Street from the school.
Students run laps during the school day, and teachers keep track of how many laps each child runs. Students earn rewards for completing specific distance goals, such as 10K, half-marathon and marathon. Last year, 85 percent of the students completed a marathon’s worth of laps over the course of the school year.
