Valentine Elementary School students will be lacing up their sneakers and participating in the Run Your Hearts Out Jog-a-Thon fundraiser on Thursday, May 4. The annual event is a fun and entertaining way to promote health and fitness. Students run or jog to upbeat music on a temporary track set up on the lower field of the school’s campus. Participants with the most laps per grade level will celebrate with a pizza party. Jog-a-Thon co-chairs Colleen McGuinness and Debbie Merryman encourage parents to cheer on their young athletes and to support their fundraising efforts. The proceeds from the Jog-a-Thon support the Valentine PTA and its enrichment programs.
