Manor Hill to Team with Children's Mercy Hospital by Participating in the 2012 Kansas City Kids' Marathon
We are pleased to announce Manor Hill’s fourth year of participation in the Kansas City Kids’ Marathon. Throughout this 9-week program, students will record miles walked and/or ran during physical education classes, recess, voluntary participation in a Friday morning running club and special events within the community. Our goal is for each Manor Hill Patriot to run or walk 25 miles leading up to the final 1.2-mile KC Kids' Marathon. Upon completion of the program, student mileage will total a full marathon! By reaching this goal, our students will complete over 11,000 miles this fall in support of Children’s Mercy Hospital’s efforts in fighting childhood obesity!
The culminating event in the program is for our students to participate in the 2012 Kansas City Kids’ Marathon held on Saturday, October 20th at Crown Center. Through their participation, students will receive a t-shirt and medal from the Kansas City Marathon for their hard work and effort. We are very excited for our students to have this opportunity to participate in this free-of-chargeprogram to help support an active and healthy life-style. Information about this program will be distributed in next week’s Friday Folders.

Friday Morning Running Club Is Back!
In conjunction with the Kansas City Kids’ Marathon training program, we would like to offer students the opportunity to participate in a before-school Friday morning running club. You and your student are invited to join staff and friends each Friday morning leading up to the KC Kids’ Marathon. Your student may walk or can be dropped off at the Manor Hill walking trail beginning at 7:30 a.m. to complete miles towards reaching his/her goal of 25 miles prior to the Oct. 20th event. Students will be supervised by staff from 7:30-8:00 a.m. at which time they will be dismissed from the trail to enter into the building for the school day. The first running club will be held on Friday, August 24th!
