Marine Corps Marathon Update

Today, Princess YellowHair and her classmates at the Lucky Leprechuan Elementary School received a check for $1000 for their participation in the Healthy Kids Fun Run which was held in conjunction with the Marine Corps Marathon. The school received the award for having the most participants in the annual event. Eighty-Eight of Princess YellowHair's classmates participated in the annual event. In addition to the check for $1000, McDonalds donated apple dippers for each of the 400 or so students in the school. King Jake didn't get any apple dippers and his stomache is starting to rubble a little bit. Unfortunately King Jake didn't run in the marathon so I guess that he doesn't really need the extra calories anyway. Several marines were onhand to make the presentation along with their mascot Miles who is a 7 foot tall bulldog. The $1000 will be used to purchase supplies for the Physical Education Department at the Lucky Leprechuan Elementary School.

Great Job, Princess yellow hair. You should start training the King for the next big race. He loves running!
