PHM students participate in running program

Posted:

PHM students showed running is elementary at Elm Road Elementary Monday.

It's all part of the schools' wellness program.

It's also pretty grueling with students training for several weeks to run the one mile race.

It's like a cross country event with the boys competing against the boys and the girls competing against each other. Over 1,000 students ran the mile.

Jerry Thacker, superintendent of PHM schools, says, "Wellness initiative is a high priority for us because we know when students feel healthy, follow good nutritional habits and are physically fit perform better in school and really feel better in life."

After the races, students were given snack bags.
