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.
Let the games begin
