Mills Park Maniacs Family Marathon

Thursday June 12, 2014

UNC Wellness Personal trainer and mother of two kids at Mills park Elementary, Susan Kroll, volunteered with Mills Park Physical Education teacher, Colleen Kanters, along with other wellness committee members, to help out with the morning workouts for the Mills Park Maniacs Family Marathon.  Maniacs participants ran 25 miles together with their family members over several weeks with optional morning workouts on Wednesdays at school.  On June 6, 2014, the whole school came out to cheer on the 200 participants and their parents as they ran around the school and through the UNC sponsored balloon arch to complete their final 1.2 miles, doing a full 26.2 mile Marathon as a community.  Kids all got cut oranges and waters donated by Mills park physical education and UNC Wellness.  It was an awesome day!  Way to go Maniacs!!!
