The Solana Beach Schools Foundation hosted Solana Pacific Elementary School’s annual Sandpiper Sprint fun run March 3 to raise money for the school’s Discovery Labs and STREAM programs : Art, Science, supplemental P.E., and Technology. Shortly before the event date, students seek pledges from parents, family members, and friends. At the Sandpiper Sprint, the kids ran a course on the back playing field for 20 minutes, accompanied by their classmates, teachers and parent volunteers. The DJ & MC motivated the kids with fun tunes and words of encouragement. Each class wore different colors and team names that they had chosen. Some of the teachers & parents ran in costumes.
Researchers at the UCSD School of Medicine found a possible correlation between eating a high-calorie fast-food breakfast, and “leaky gut syndrome,” which could be a factor in developing Type 2 diabetes.
