On Monday, May 2nd, Just Run celebrated their three millionth mile at Santa Lucia Elementary School in King City. Students marked the occasion with a song, posters, banners, and a run around the school field.
Just Run is a free, multifaceted youth fitness program developed by the Big Sur International Marathon. It not only promotes exercise and the sport of running but also good citizenship and healthy eating through its Just Deeds and Just Taste features. Virtual runs across the USA and Europe link points of interest and geographical and historical sites making it educational as well. The program began in 2005 to help promote fitness and healthy lifestyle choices, while combating obesity and its related illnesses.
Congratulations to Just Run and all of their participating schools throughout the nation for hitting three million miles! We are looking forward to celebrating the four million mark very soon!
County Superintendent, Dr. Nancy Kotowski and Santa Lucia Principal Brinet Greenlee hold the finish line.
