Frontier School Division
Students and Staff Participate in the
2017 Manitoba Marathon
Students and staff from various Frontier schools travelled to Winnipeg to take part in the 2017 Manitoba Marathon on June 18th in Winnipeg.
Students had an opportunity to visit Investors Group Field and meet current Winnipeg Blue Bomber Linebacker Thomas Miles who spent time talking to the students, playing football, and signing autographs.
The students were also able to visit the Human Rights Museum at the Forks. All the students ran hard on a rainy and cold race day, with many finishing in the top half of their age category.
The ability of Frontier School Division students to participate in such an event as the Manitoba Marathon, allows for the development and appreciation of becoming physically literate students who will continue to be active well into the future. Thanks to all of the students and staff for making this an unforgettable trip, as many new friendships were formed and memories were made.
