    Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s),

    Welcome to another fantastic year at Coal Mountain Elementary School!  As we begin the new school year, we would like to introduce you to the 100 Mile Club for our 3rd – 5th grade students.  

    The 100 Mile Club® was started 27 years ago by Kara Lubin, a teacher from Southern California. 100 Mile Club® is now a non-profit organization whose sole mission is to provide to all individuals the opportunity to experience fitness and TRUE personal success by Accepting the Challenge of running (or walking) 100 miles at school during a single school year.  Students use and experience life skills based on The Pyramid of Success, designed by the legendary basketball coach, teacher, family friend, and 100 Mile Club® supporter, Coach John Wooden.  

    We have Accepted the Challenge, and we are so excited! Starting September 12, participants will meet at the track anytime between 7:10 -7:35 a.m., stretch out, and run a little bit. The miles and love for running begin to build almost instantly!  When your child reaches 25 miles, he/she will be presented with a fantastic t-shirt that is designed to show off your child’s accomplishments throughout the year.  
    Through the journey toward 100 miles, your child will practice personal goal setting, team spirit, perseverance, poise, confidence, and honest self-evaluation. As your child reaches other MILEstones, we all celebrate together.  When your child reaches 100 miles, he or she will be awarded with a beautiful gold medal at our Year-End Medal Ceremony where every participant will receive a special certificate celebrating their total miles run. 

    Please register online and then go to www.MyPaymentsPlus.com to pay the $20 Elite package incentives registration fee to celebrate each MILEstone reached by your child on their 100 mile journey, and includes: • 2022-2023 Annual Sticker • NEW! Dog Tag Keychain • Challenge Accepted card • NEW! MILEstone Stickers (4) • 25 Mile T-Shirt • 50 Mile Pencil • 75 Mile Wristband • Year-End Certificate • 100 Mile Gold Medal and Lanyard! We look forward to celebrating your child’s accomplishments both on the track and in the classroom.  See you on the field!!
