03 Apr Brianna Glenn brings Run With US! to 5th & 6th grade Nashville classrooms
In addition to running with real Olympic track & field athletes, the kids got to ask Shawn and Brianna their own questions while the athletes shared how running track has inspired them to be healthy. Brianna shared how she was always the fastest girl in her neighborhood and loved competing even before she joined a track team. When asked if Shawn got to eat for free at restaurants since he was in the Olympics, Shawn reminded students the importance of giving back to our country and answering yes, he does sometimes get to eat for free—especially in his hometown!
Olympic athlete or 5th grader, the school play event was an inspiring day all about being active in the classroom, staying healthy, and feeling awesome.
While these inspiring athletes can’t visit every classroom in person, schools in your community can be inspired to be active throughout the class day by playing Run With US! alongside Shawn Crawford, Brianna Glenn and others anytime on a projector.
