Deerfield Dashers


Deerfield Elementary is excited to participate in the 2016 Kids Run the OC Training Program through the OC Marathon Foundation.  This is a training program to help kids become more physically fit, promote an active and healthy lifestyle and combat the onset of childhood obesity…..while having fun!  This is accomplished through various games which help improve speed, agility, hand/eye coordination, flexibility and overall fitness.  The club will meet once a week for three months and at the end of the program each child will have accumulated 25.2 miles of fun activity, and will finish their own Marathon by completing their final mile at the Kids Run the OC on Saturday, April 30, 2016.  If you would like to be a parent volunteer, please click here to fill out the volunteer contact information.  We would love to have the help.
