Dr. Charles Dupre, Fort Bend ISD Superintendent and Dr. Thomas Randle, Lamar Consolidated ISD Superintendent, are leading their school districts in a competition to see which district can log the most miles during Million Mile Month.
In 2014, FBISD had the most Million Mile Month registrants out of all participating organizations. This year, they are back with a bigger fitness goal, and brought some friends, LCISD, with them!
“Last year, we logged more miles than any other organization, making us the defending champions. This year, my friend and colleague, Dr. Thomas Randle of LCISD, accepted a challenge to try and beat our FBISD team. As superintendent, I know how well our FBISD community can work together on behalf of children. Our strength in teamwork makes Fort Bend ISD the team to beat,” said Dr. Dupre.
“We are dedicated to equipping our students with life skills, so Fort Bend ISD is eager to participate in a physical fitness challenge that helps children, reduces stress, and promotes wellness,” said Dr. Dupre.
Already nearly 5,000 FBISD staff members, students, parents, and community members have already accepted the challenge to log each mile they walk, run, swim, or bike through April 30. Together, the FBISD community is hoping to log more miles per participant than our neighbors at Lamar Consolidated.
Lamar CISD may be new to Million Mile Month this year, but they are bringing their A game! Check out this video they posted last week.
