Paine Elementary is pleased to announce the names of the 105 participants of the 2016 Mercedes Kids Marathon! These students showed a lot of love during Valentine’s weekend by participating in the local event to help raise money for various charities in our area, including The Bell Center. After training in their PE classes at school, the students ran the last mile of their marathon with several hundred other students from across the state. After crossing the finish line, they received a medal to reward them for their accomplishment.
The Mercedes Marathon has raised more than 5 million dollars for local charities over the past fifteen years. We are so proud of our Paine husky runners!
