It won’t be ready until the new school year, but Brawner Intermediate School students took time before leaving for summer vacation on May 25, 2012, to break ground on the school’s new running track.
Raising money for the track has been an ongoing project for the school and the parent-teacher organization. The track will benefit both student runners and walkers through the school Miler’s Club.
Brawner students have a long history of posting big numbers in the Miler’s Club. During the just-completed school year from October through May, third, fourth, and fifth graders at the campus ran a combined 23,477 miles.
Through the Miler’s Clubs at elementary and intermediate campuses, students are challenged to run or walk miles on the school track and then are recognized when they complete certain distance benchmarks.
