St. Gregory’s Running Across Canada

As part of our  quest to be a Certified Healthy School  our Grade 1-3 students are spending 10 minutes a day running!

We launched the Get Healthy Challenge on the first day of school, during our assembly.

Our Grade 3 students are leading everyone as we count the kilometers and track them on a map.

So far we have logged 772 KM!   Not bad for 3 days.

KM run as of Sept 6

You can follow along as we keep on running all the way to the Pacific Ocean.

We started in St John’s Newfoundland on Sept 4, and have run all the way past Corner Brook  and are on our way to Channel Port Aux Basques.  This week we will hop on a ferry bound for Nova Scotia

We encourage you to take some time and talk with your child about physical activity and how to build a healthy body.  You can also look at a map of Canada and talk about all the different provinces and amazing parts of Canada.

If you have a relative who lives along our path let us know and we will give a shout out as we run by 😊

Keep Running!
