Students at Birchview Elementary School began their work with the APEX team on the spring Fun Run Fundraiser project that promotes fitness and leadership.
A team of leaders from APEX visited students in classrooms today for the start of a two-week project to teach students valuable leadership lessons, raise pledges and serve the teachers. Students will be raising pledges for each lap they run during the APEX Fun Run, which is planned April 18.
The program is set up to promote fitness and leadership traits in students and run by athletes who are all very passionate about building leaders and are deeply connected to teachers and principals in education.
For six days, the APEX team will visit classes for 5-8 minutes a day to give the lesson and reward students. The culmination of the nine days of activities is the actual APEX Fun Run. Parents and teachers can enjoy the run with the students and encourage them with noisemakers and cheering sections.
