The Go for 42 and Mango Kids Fun Run was held on Sunday, July 3rd. Students from kindergarten to grade 8 in School Districts 16, 9 and 11 participated. A total of 260 crossed the finish line of the 2.2km run that hopefully instilled in them the joy of running and the value of physical activity. Many of the students on Sunday were completing the final phase of the marathon challenge, to go a total of 42.2 kilometers, a challenge they had started at their schools earlier in the spring.
The Rotary Club of Newcastle were one of the sponsors of the run and members were at the finish line to hand out water to the participants.
