100 Mile Club
 
We are so excited to be entering our 4th year of participating in The 100 Mile Club®!!  Beginning September 28th until the end of the 2010-2011 school year, members will be meeting at the basketball court stairs on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2:34-3:40 to  run/walk around the block.  The 100 Mile Club® is about doing your personal best, so students of all fitness levels and abilities are encouraged to join the fun!! 
 
Here is a poem written by Coach Akren, a PE teacher here at CFIS, that reflects the values The 100 Mile Club® instills in its members:
 
 

The 100 Mile Club® Poem

 

It doesn't even matter, if you walk or run....

When you join "The 100 Mile Club®", you're sure to have some fun!

 

The challenge is to run 100 miles, over the course of the year...

When you accomplish this goal, folks all around will cheer!

 

You'll experience true personal success, it'll make you wanna holler....

You're doing something good, so you'll stand a little taller!

 

It's only about 3 miles per week, and it's a safe physical activity....

Encouraging kids to be active, which reduces childhood obesity!

 

The benefits are many, it will improve your health...

It's doable for everyone, in groups or by yourself!

 

It'll become a good habit, another reason to be at school....

This challenge is really a gift, and that alone is rather cool!

 

You'll feel a sense of achievement, and that feels really nice....

Becoming more confident, is also part of the prize!

 

You can run before school, or some will run after....

Either way is good medicine, it works as well as laughter!

 

If you join "The 100 Mile Club®", make sure to tell Dad and Mom...

And get more information at "100mileclub.com!"

 

So reach for the stars, and stand-out in a crowd....

Stay calm and focused, and feel strong and proud!

 

 

Thank you and we look forward to running with you at The 100 Mile Club®!!
