Just one more mile to go! Students from Golden Gate (GGE), Golden Terrace (GTE), and Mike Davis (MDE) elementary schools are about to run the last mile of their “Whole Foods Market – Kids on the Go” program. This final ceremony race will feature nearly 300 students reaching their 26.2 mile goal – something they’ve been working on for the last thirteen weeks. All participating students will receive a medal as they cross the finish line. Superintendent Dr. Kamela Patton, Sheriff Kevin Rambosk, and other community leaders will be on-hand to congratulate the students.
The GGE, GTE, and MDE “Kids on the GO!” program was made possible in collaboration with the Safe & Healthy Children’s Coalition of Collier County, and thanks to this year’s program title sponsor Whole Foods Market. The “Whole Foods Market – Kids on the GO!” program is an effort to increase physical activity and decrease the threat of obesity among kids. Special thanks to the Collier County Health Department, Golden Gate Aquatic Facility, Golisano Children’s Museum of Naples, Physicians Regional Healthcare System, Well Vending, Moe’s Southwest Grill, and Friendly Farmer’s Market for the brag tags and incentives the participating students will receive.
