Save the Children cares deeply about children in the United States and all around the world, and one of the things that concerns them is that some children do not get enough to eat and are hungry. The purpose of the World Marathon Challenge is to bring attention and support to ending hunger. STC at Eliza Miller Primary School & Eliza Miller Elementary School took part in the 1500 Meter Marathon Challenge. Below is some pictures from the event.
