Move Well Marathon 2013

For the 4th year in a row, USD 400 and Dr. Darrel Loder of Smoky Valley Chiropractic sponsored the Move Well Marathon. Students at Marquette Elementary, Soderstrom Elementary, and Smoky Valley Middle School had the opportunity to walk/jog a marathon (26.2 miles) during the months of September and October. Students exercise daily during the course of the program.

Teachers and staff in all buildings also participated and exercised before school with their students.

Congratulations to the students, staff, and parents of USD 400 for making exercise a priority!
