The Cloquet River Run is a fundraising activity that promotes healthy lifestyles in our children and community. Beginning in 2007, people of all ages have participated in the 1 mile or 5K run/walk.  Many people also come out to volunteer and cheer!  Both races start and end at Churchill Elementary School.  The “little kids race” gives children up to age 6 the opportunity to participate on a short sprint in front of the school.  The vision of this event has expanded and evolved into a very popular family-friendly yet challenging opportunity for health and fitness.  It is a fun community event and great for family fun! Students at Churchill participate in a practice 1 mile run/walk during the school day a few weeks before the event!

Race proceeds will go toward health-related equipment and programs and technology purchases for Churchill Elementary School. Due to many incredibly generous sponsors and hundreds of runners we have been able to help fund these Churchill projects, many of which are on-going:

  • Churchill Playground- helped with remaining payments owed
  • Purchase of I-Pads and Technology Support for Education
  • 2 Water Bottle Filling Stations
  • Healthy Snack Fridays for the Students – healthy snacks and fresh produce distributed to the children 2 Fridays each month
  • Fruit and Veggie Taste-Testing Classroom Activity
  • Kids Run the Nation – an after school student group that focuses on health and fitness
  • Adventures in Fitness for SmartBoard – a classroom fitness activity subscription to be utilized on those sub-zero and inside recess days.
  • Set of Playground Balls for Each Grade and Ball Cage for the Playground entrance
  • Inspirational Health and Wellness Speakers for School Assembly
  • New “GaGa Pit” – Playground Game (Kids Love This!)
  • Volleyball Net
  • Roller Skating in gym class- Grades 2-4
  • Funds set aside to provide scholarships and reduced fees for children to participate in this event.
