On October 26, 2012, 516 young runners dashed 100 meters as part of a global “Run for the Planet” organized by National Geographic Kids and First Lady Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move” campaign. Volunteers from UCSC and the Santa Cruz Fire Department helped to officiate the event.

Recently, the school was informed that a world record had indeed been set through this massive-scale collective effort to promote kids’ fitness.

Congratulations Bay View!
