Active Schools Grant Presents:
Deerfield on the Run
The Active School’s Grant is bringing back Deerfield on the Run to promote physical activity for elementary students outside the school day.
Deerfield on the Run is for beginning runners in 4th-6th grades and will follow a “walk to 5K” program. This 5-week program will begin with short intervals of running and walking and the running intervals will be increased each week. The goal is to build each child’s cardiovascular endurance, which will be tested at the beginning and end of the program.
Deerfield on the Run participants will meet twice per week, on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:15-4:15 at the elementary school. Runs will depart from the elementary school, travel through the village of Deerfield, and return to the school. The program begins on Tuesday, April 16th and will conclude on Thursday, May 16th. Deerfield on the Run participants will have a 5K race on the final date, May 16th.
There is a $10 registration fee to hold your child’s spot in this program and to cover the price of the Deerfield on the Run t-shirts. Middle and high school students can sign up (no cost) to serve as mentors in the program. If parents are interested in volunteering, please indicate so on the registration form.
