Epperly Heights Elementary Representatives
at the OKC Kids’ Memorial Marathon
We are looking for participants to represent our school at the OKC Memorial Marathon for the second year. We would appreciate any and all of the support you provide for your children and our school. There are several teachers who are interested in participating and joining the students as well. We would love for you to join us, so please feel free to join for weekly exercise!
If you’re interested, please, fill out the attached permission slip. We are offering a THURSDAY Train-a-Thon for students (and families) in order to log 25 miles before Sunday, April 29th, where they will run their last 1.2 to complete a full marathon! The last 1.2 miles will be completed downtown at the Kids’ Memorial Marathon partition of the Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon. This program will start on Thursday, February 21st, 2019, and will last through Thursday, April 25th (just prior to the actual marathon). We will meet in the school gym at 4:00pm and move out to the school track for training. Families that would like to participate can meet your child on the track. Pick-up time will be at 5:00 pm at the gates located in the parking lot next to the track, which is behind the cafeteria. We are planning on walking/jogging/running outside, but if the weather is wet or too cold, we WILL walk inside, so mark Thursdays on your schedule! IF WEATHER IS EXTREME (SNOW OR TORNADO THREATS) WE WILL ALLOW STUDENTS TO CALL HOME THAT DAY!
