The purpose of the Sandburg Running and Walking Club is to promote physical activity and healthy lifestyles. It also gives students an opportunity to meet other students in the school, and interact with their friends in a fun, healthy environment. The club also offers a chance for students to boost their self esteem as they achieve their mileage goals.


The running and walking club meets every day at 7:25am throughout the school year. It’s fun!  It’s good for your body.  It’s good for your brain.  You don't have to go a certain distance. You can go just as far as you want to. The students do get rewarded every 5 miles. When they reach special milestones, they are recognized at Monday morning assembly. Come out and join us. I bet you'll see a bunch of your friends!
