Bonny Slope Elementary is fortunate to announce a new partnership with Marathon Kids! BSE has received a grant from Marathon Kids, partnered with Nike, to provide running clubs in elementary schools. Marathon Kids and Nike’s goal is to encourage kids to run at least 4 marathons during their running club while providing exclusive Nike rewards at the end of each marathon for the participants.
The grant we received provides these exclusive Nike rewards for up to 150 students who run 4 marathons during running club!
Currently, Bonny Slope Elementary already has our amazing Bobcat Trail Club, lead by Kelly Matsushima and Joyce Hsu. Every student at BSE can come participate in BTC by running or walking and track their laps towards marathons on Monday and Thursday mornings from 8 -8:25AM.
Since BSE already has the BTC, we are joining Marathon Kids and BTC together for the rest of this year. Students will still receive all their BTC rewards, but once they finish 4 cards (One Marathon) at BTC they automatically become a Marathon Kids participant and start to receive the additional exclusive Nike rewards.
BTC is still in need of volunteers from 8-8:25 AM on Monday and Thursday mornings especially when it is raining and we have to run undercover. With the partnership with Marathon Kids and Nike, we would love to have any Nike employee parents come out on those mornings. All are welcome to come volunteer and encourage our kids to run.
