Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Mississippi will host the fifth annual Get Ready to Run Kids’ One-Mile Fun Run at Renaissance at Colony Park in Ridgeland Saturday.

This year, the Get Ready to Run School Program helped nearly 22,650 students in K-5 schools in Central Mississippi learn about proper running form, nutrition, healthy goal setting and more during regularly scheduled P.E. classes.

Over 2,660 students are registered for this year’s event.

Students at participating schools are also competing to win award money for their school’s P.E. program.

The top three schools with the highest percentage of participation at the Fun Run will be awarded up to $2,000.

This year’s event will run from 8:30 a.m.-10 a.m. The event will begin on the grassy area on the east side of Renaissance at Colony Park.
