In order to increase moderate to vigorous physical activity (MVPA) outside of the school day, Fall River will be offering our 100 Mile Club again this year. As 100 Mile Club participants, students can track the miles they walk or run during 100 Mile Club designated time at school, during special recess days, and at 100 Mile Club sanctioned community events. This allows ALL students to participate and is a great way to combine all of their activity towards a common goal—walking or running 100 miles during the school year.
