The PCIS Run Club is a 8 week program offered to 6th graders. The students in the program run/ jog/ walk (move!) twice a week after school with a large group of awesome volunteers. (Piqua PD members, community members, PCS members, NHS members, PCS athletes, etc.) The goal of the program is for the students to be motivated to be healthy and active while learning to build healthy relationships with our awesome volunteers. Our end goal is to then have our kiddos participate in a local 5K race held the first Sunday of May at PHS Alexander Stadium which benefits our PCS Cross Country Teams. The PCIS Run Club has been up and running for 4 years now and it is so fantastic and inspirational every year to see our kiddos practice and complete a 5K race, something a lot of them never thought they would do. The program has been very popular at PCIS! I cannot say enough about the students and volunteers that participate in this program. We are currently in week 2 of the 2019 season and have 91 students and over 20 volunteers. This community is just fantastic!!
