Members of the Midshipman Action Group have been working with the Mighty Milers program to help get young students excited about physical fitness.
The Mighty Milers is an after school running program sponsored by Annapolis Recreation and Parks. The 6-week program introduces elementary school students to physical fitness through after school training.
The program culminates in an annual track meet in November. The midshipmen from MAG helped train the students, and they – along with the USNA Marathon Team – helped cheer the students on during the Nov. 12 meet.
“We engaged the kids in running drills and games with the goal in mind of running a mile at the track meet,” said MIDN 1/C Blake Hamilton. “All the kids completed their mile at the track meet.”
