What: Clifford’s First Annual Jog-A-Thon
Why: At a time when childhood obesity is at an all time high and budget cuts are threatening the loss of Clifford’s physical education program, Clifford Street Elementary School’s Panda PTO is going the extra mile by organizing Clifford’s First Annual Jog-A-Thon. An extension of Clifford’s Healthy Eating Initiative, the goal of the Jog-A-Thon is to encourage students to make healthy food choices and increase physical activity. Proceeds will help fund the Panda Reading and Edible Garden and additional materials needed to encourage healthy eating and physical activity.
When: June 1, 2012 from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.
