WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Kids learning physical fitness and how to stay active took over part of Cumberland Avenue in West Lafayette this week.
Cumberland Elementary students took part in the annual Taulman Mile on Friday.
The event is named after retired physical education teacher Roger Taulman.
Students were split up into their respective grade levels and told to finish the mile as fast as they could.
Taulman says it teaches them that it doesn't take a lot to stay fit.
"Do something. A little jogging. A little softball or basketball. Just get out and get some exercise," Taulman said. "It's good for you. It keeps you healthy."
The run was first called the Cumberland Mile, but an ex-principal decided to name it after the gym teacher 15 years ago.
This is the event's 25th year.
A Lafayette man charged with multiple bank robberies in Tippecanoe and Clinton Counties pleads guilty to a series of bank robberies in Illinois.
The drop in temperatures brings the potential for health dangers, such as hypothermia and frost bite. The bitter temperatures can pose a threat for children, adults and pets.
As it stands Wednesday, there will be no FEMA aid for tornado survivors in Howard County.
