McCrary Elementary has a Girls Only Running Club called Mustangs on the Move which meets once a week after school. Girls are setting goals for themselves to increase their activity levels. The girls are also learning about nutrition, self-esteem, and having a positive self-image. Our first practice was October 5. There were 36 girls at our first meeting along with 4 teachers and 1 volunteer! We set our first goal to move around the track for 10 minutes without stopping, and we were all successful!
The Mustangs on the Move Girls Only Running Club worked our way up to completing a 5K race! We had 24 girls and 12 teachers participate in the Human Race 5K in downtown Asheboro. The race was on Saturday March 18, 2017- and the rainy morning did not slow these girls down! Our team raised $1,200 for the Race! Ms. Lassiter and fifth graders Jacque and Ariana finished in 37 minutes! All of our girls finished the 5K race- what an accomplishment!
