The Marine Corps Marathon (MCM) and U.S. Marines from Marine Corps Base Quantico will present the annual Healthy School Award to the students of Eagle View Elementary in Fairfax, VA, during a school assembly on Thursday, February 18, at 2:00 p.m. in the school gym at 4500 Dixie Hill Road, Fairfax, VA 22030.

The award is the result of the student’s participation in the 2009 Marine Corps Marathon Healthy Kids Fun Run held on October 24, 2009 in Arlington, VA. Out of 353 schools, Eagle View was one of the top three in overall student participation at the one-mile fun run held for kids ages 6 to 13.

During the assembly members of the United States Marine Corps will lead the students in PT drills while promoting health, fitness, and strong bodies. MCM partners, Sodexo, and the National Children’s Museum will participate in the ceremony. MCM’s Miles the bulldog, Sodexo’s Lift-Off!, and the school’s Eagle mascot will add to the festivities.

Online registration for the 2010 Healthy Kids Fun Run opens May 5, 2010 at www.marinemarathon.com.
