About This Activity

Come join us for this FUN-filled, 5k/1 Mile Fun Run/Walk. The Dayton City School(DCS) Physical Education Department will be sponsoring this community 5k/1 mile event to encourage movement and physical activity. We would like to get the community and school moving.

Why? “Tennessee's rate of childhood obesity is 14.5%. Those children are five times as likely as normal-weight children to be overweight or obese as adults, which can lead to lifelong physical and mental health issues;” states the 2013 report from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. Another 2014 eye-opening report states, “One in three children in Tennessee, Georgia and Alabama is overweight.” Let’s move!
