The Pelican Rapids Viking Elementary School “Run Club” finished the spring with total mileage  of 356.25.

More than 60 kids in  grades 2 – 6 contributed to the mileage and, therefore, “crushed the goal we, as coaches, set for them,” noted Sheri O’Brien, Viking school physical education teacher. 

The coach team included K. Kirkwood, H. Moe, J. Larson, A. Potts along with O’Brien.

“We are very proud of the students’ steady improvements because they applied perseverance.  Students also improved their cardiovascular development,” said O’Brien. 

Coaches hoped that the students learned a bit more of what they are capable of athletically through the program. 

Principal Ed Richardson has been a big supporter of the Run Club program.  

Included in the Run Club education was one day out of the three day a week program, teachers and students  reviewed healthy eating, beverage and sleeping habits.
