  READ, RIGHT, & RUN
Fox Elementary School

Fall 2014

Dear Parents:

This will be the eleventh year that Fox Elementary will be participating in a marathon involving reading, physical fitness and character education.  The GO! St. Louis Read, Right, and Run Marathon® presented by Express Scripts had 22,000 students representing over 250 schools in the bi-state area complete this unique program. 

The GO! St. Louis Read, Right & Run Marathon combines three important components of education, community service and wellness to give students a fun and challenging way to accomplish a goal.  During this program, students will:

  • READ 26 books
  • RIGHT the community by doing 26 good deeds/acts of service
  • RUN 26.2 miles individually to add up to a full MARATHON by April 11, 2015!

As GO! St. Louis Read, Right & Run Marathon participants, they will:

  • Meet at certain times with their school GO! St. Louis Read, Right & Run Marathon group to work together on parts of the program. (Thursdays after school: 3:30-4:30 beginning November 13th, 2014.)
  • Receive a journal to record each book, mile, and deed (fun activities included, too!)
  • Participate in the final event on April 11, 2015 in Forest Park, where each student runs the last 1.2 miles of the marathon.  Each finisher receives a bib number, t-shirt and MEDAL!
