Sunrise Steppers

Have you seen the cool shoe tokens your child has earned at Sunrise Steppers???

Each token represents a mile of running or walking around the big field.

Every Friday, hundreds of students and teachers choose to skip their lunchtime recess to run or walk laps around the big sports field for 20 minutes. Students who complete a mile receive a plastic running shoe token that they collect and proudly wear on a bracelet/necklace chain.

Steppers is a wonderful program that promotes exercise, healthy lifestyle choices, friendly competition and community spirit within the school.

In past years, students and teachers have run/walked approximately 5,000 miles – the distance from Tucson to Dublin, Ireland (assuming they could run across the top of the Atlantic Ocean)!

To recognize and reward their dedication, there is a Steppers Fun Day on March 1st, 2024 at the end of this program from 11:00 a.m. to 1:10 p.m. on the Big Field (behind the playgrounds).
