Pittsfield Elementary’s first Pittsfield Mileage Club Mini Marathon on Wednesday raised money for the ChadTough Foundation as well as some additional physical education equipment.
Who showed up for a few minutes to lend support? Hint: He’s not bad with a football. In fact, he’s likely NFL-bound. OK. He’s Michigan quarterback Dylan McCaffrey, who has been at Pittsfield as part of U-M’s Mentorship Program.
Physical Education teacher Darcy Thorpe-Knoll said the students were excited to raise money for such a worthy cause.
“It’s been going great,” she said. “It’s our first one. We’re trying to promote healthy fitness activity and do a good community service.”
They raised about $600. The event is sponsored by catch.org.
