To promote an active lifestyle and good nutritional habits School District 16 has joined the efforts of MANGO in encouraging participation in a program where children run or run/walk one to two kilometers a day for four weeks to accumulate 40 kilometers in total. The students are then invited to the Mango Kids 2.2 km Fun Run on July 5th to complete their Marathon distance with a total of 42.2 Kilometers. They will receive T-shirts and participation medals to recognize their accomplishment.
