Hundreds of students gathered at the starting line today to launch Sunrise Elementary’s Recess Runners Club. Superman-- rather Eric Kramer, 3rd grade teacher, led the crowd of 565 excited kids onto the playground. The Superman cape could have fooled them.
Kramer tells them, “I started running when I was in 4th grade. I’ve been running ever since and I’m not in 4th grade anymore.”
They’re starting healthy habits now that will last a lifetime.
“We’ll be running laps around the playground building up their cardiovascular health and building a strong body and mind.” Kramer said.
It’s a program that was started with the help of a $2,000 grant from ING Bank.
