Dazzle Dash Alternative Plans for Coronavirus Containment
As we remain ever vigilant about our obligations to our community to mitigate the risk of passing COVID-19, we have made changes to our Dazzle Dash & Family Fun Day event. As a socially responsible school, we have re-imagined this public event to make it a safer experience for our community. See Governor Wolf's guidelines within his order.
If you are already registered, please join us for a VIRTUAL RACE promoting mindful living or if you haven't sign up now for a virtual race! Proceeds underwrite primary education at MPFS, in support of Meaningful Learning for a Purposeful Life. Thank you for your support.
According to the Center's for Disease Control (CDC) physical activity is one of the MOST important things you can do for your health. The immediate effects of being active lead to improved thinking or cognition, and reduced short-term feelings of anxiety. Regular physical activity can also reduce your risk of depression and anxiety and help you sleep better. According to the state, you may engage in outdoor activity, such as walking, hiking or running if you maintain social distancing.
What is a Virtual Race?
Virtual races are events (runs/walks) that can be completed by participants anywhere over a range of time. This will allow our runners to participate in our race when we cannot physically run together. This now makes treadmill participation an option! You can complete your run from now up until the end of the day on April 4th.
In addition, we have designed many of the physical education activities posted for your child(ren) so that they can be done with an adult or as a family. One in particular we wanted to point our is the MPFS Mileage Log! Using the log, you set a goal (5k, 10k, half marathon or marathon) with your child for walking, jogging, running or biking and then keep track of your progress in quarter mile increments. We hope you will join us in trying to stay active during these unprecedented times! Please contact T. Ryan if you have any questions about the Mileage Log.
So get active and stay healthy! Then upload your photos or videos of your activity to our dedicated Facebook page with this hashtag #viritualdazzledash.
