Hey Moms! Most of you with children in elementary school have probably heard of MorningMile. It's a great program! To bring the program to more schools, the UF Health Administration Student Association is having a "Rise 'N' Run 5k and 1 Mile Fun Run" on Saturday, April 13. There will be delicious and healthy foods, local vendors, raffles and much more!
Here is some more information from one of the event's coordinators...
Good Morning Gainesville Moms!
Please join the UF Health Administration Student Association for the 2nd Annual 'Rise N' Run 5k and 1 Mile Fun Run,' benefiting MorningMile. If you haven't heard about it, MorningMile is an incredible program that exists in almost every school in our area and is expanding very consistently throughout the U.S. In short, MorningMile facilitates the opportunity for children to run for 20-40 minutes in the morning each day before school. These kids, of all ages, are racking up hundreds of miles a year, and the program has lead to marked increase in attentiveness, appetite and energy!
Last year we had over 200 runners at our 1st annual run and this year stands to surpass that number considerably! With our success in 2012 were able to provide an entire school with the MorningMile and would love to double that in 2013. However, we need your help by bringing out friends and family to this year's event on Saturday, April 13th. The 1 Mile starts at 8 am and the 5k at 8:30 am at Flavet Field on the UF Campus.
There will be delicious healthy foods, local vendors, raffles and much more. The registration price does increase on the day of the race so make sure you preregister! Thanks so much for your time, we'll see you April 13th!
