WES Running Club Takes Part In Fair Run

On Jan. 16, the South Florida Fair hosted the Read, Run & Recycle Kids Mile Run. The Wellington Elementary School Running Club was proud to participate in the event. The club meets before school a few times a week and trains for runs like this one. Ronda Wayne has been heading up the club for several years and enjoys watching the students take an active role in exercising to stay healthy. Club members learn proper warm-up techniques, along with selecting healthy food choices. The members also get to run before school, so they can start the day ready to learn. All the runners completed the race, some in record-breaking times. Shown above are running club members at the fair.
