SUMMER SMILES! 🌞🏃‍♀️

Hello, Summer sMILES! It is hard to believe that summer break is here, and we’re saying goodbye to the ‘22-23 academic school year. Summer is the perfect time to earn miles, and did you know…“Just getting kids, and even adults, outside — whether it be a park, playground, beach, or grassy field — naturally encourages physical activity,” says Allison Collins, MD, a general pediatrician and a board-certified lifestyle medicine practitioner at Kaiser Permanente Santa Clara in California. Summer provides an awesome opportunity to get outdoors with your family, which boosts mental and physical well-being, all while creating lifelong memories.  Let’s have a Healthy and Happy Summer! Here are the best summer miles ideas for June to run and walk with friends and family:  Take a Hike. Time to lace up your hiking boots! Meet at a local hiking trail or National park to earn summer miles together. Coastline Cleanup. We can all do our part, whether a lake, river, or ocean. June 8th is World Oceans Day. Host a coastal cleanup walk to give back to our planet and your health!  Club 262. Our summer challenge will keep you moving and healthy all summer. The goal is simple; run or walk 26.6 miles while having fun and earning swag.     Together, we’re committed to making running fun and encouraging for all. So keep putting one foot in front of the other, and let’s earn some miles! 🏃🌞🏃‍♀️ 

MILES TO SMILE ABOUT! 🏃‍♀️

The most important things in life are the connections you make with others. 100 Mile Club helps build strong social-emotional connections by providing a shared goal for our participants. The relationship between teachers and students, or parents and children, greatly impacts our children’s development. Setting a goal and working together to accomplish that goal gives our children opportunities to learn the value of dedication and teamwork, all while creating lifelong memories.❤️  Meet the Huff Family! Running strong together since 2014 How long have you been part of 100 Mile Club and Club 262?  Here are some thoughts from Mom! “We have been a part of the 100 Mile Club since my son Nathan’s 1st-grade year (2014-2015, our first year) and Club 262 summer challenge since 2018. Haley has been part of the 100 Mile Club since she was 3.” What advice do you have for a family wanting to move together during summer and new school ’23-24 (Club 262 or 100 Mile Club)? “Our advice is just to do it and walk or run and talk, make lasting memories, and make it something to look forward to.” What is your favorite part of Club 262 and 100 Mile Club? “As a mom, my favorite part of the 100 Mile Club is the new shirt color every year, walking and talking with my kids. Nathan loves the exercise part and enjoys talking while earning miles together. My sweet girl Haley loves running and walking and cherishes the moment. Robert’s favorite is exercise and family outside in the fresh air.” Were there any moments that inspired you during your 100 Mile Club journey?  “I had one moment in 2017 when I lost my mom. I needed to keep going for my kids, so 100 Mile Club and Club 262 helped me with […]

RUN THE RUN! 🏃‍♀️

“Most people will talk the talk, few will walk the walk; be amongst those few.” – Dr. Steve Maraboli. Some people will even go the EXTRA MILE and run the run, like our excellent Coach Sandy Rodriguez. Terrace View Elementary School has had the honor and privilege of having Coach Sandy as their 100 Mile Club coach since 2019. Not only does she implement our program, creating Healthy, Happy, Connected Kids on her campus for the last four years, but she also participated in our Ultra Run4Kids 2023. She ran in, completed her first 100 Miler race, and raised funds to support 100 Mile Club programs nationwide. Coach Sandy is spending her time going the EXTRA MILE and achieving big goals to make a difference in her community and nationwide. We see you! We appreciate you! Keep changing the world…one Mile and one sMILE at a time!! “I am running in the Run4Kids Ultra because, as a 100 Mile Club Coach, I love sharing my passion with students. I love watching them go from running/walking during 100 Mile Club to participating in local races.  The transformations made and the confidence gained as the year progresses are my gratification.  This race will allow me to share miles of smiles and maybe some tears with my runners as I take on a running challenge myself.  I don’t always get the opportunity to run with them, and this race will give me the opportunity. I want them to learn anything is possible if you believe! There are no limits to what we are capable of achieving. It’s all in the attitude!” – Coach Sandy.  💖A huge thanks again to Coach Sandy for your dedication and hard work!💖
