24 Hours Sports Marathon

Our school just hosted a 24 Hour Sports Marathon as a fundraiser to raise money to make our sports facilities better. They are hoping to put in showers for the students, as well as put in astro-turf on the soccer field.

One of the dads introduced the idea of a 24 hr. Sport Marathon because he had done something similar as a kid in a boarding school in the UK. In order to participate, students  had to sell raffle vouchers. Around 80 students from 4th-12th grade participated in the event and were broken up into 10 teams. 

The teams were able to compete in different events, either as a group or individually and it was our job as the teachers to help facilitate the event. Because many of the teachers have families, or live far away, the on-campus staff were chosen to help run the events throughout the night.

I was assigned to teach an aerobics class at 4:00 a.m. this morning. There's nothing like a good workout to wake you up in the middle of the night!

Enjoy the snapshots.
