This is a 20 week program where the students train to complete a 5K run at Reidsville High School on April 20, 2013. The program combines the use of physical activity and healthy eating tidbits to help fight childhood obesity. In addition, good character lessons are included each week and at the end of the program participants will earn a bracelet with ten colored beads. Each color represents a character trait, (Self Discipline, Perseverance, Sportsmanship, Good Judgement, Motivation, Caring, Consideration, Attitude, responsibility, and Etiquette). Hopefully, teaching children to make better choices now will help them create and follow a healthier lifestyle as they grow-up. Here at Williamsburg we train on Tuesdays from 2:20 to 3:15. We have 45 students participating and 11 adults. Thirty-four GO FAR members participated in the Turkey Trot one mile fun run or 5K at the Reidsville YMCA on November 10. Mrs. Parks' goal is to have over 60 participants in the GO FAR 5K on April 20th.

Third, fourth, and fifth grade teachers and students elect students who are responsible, participate in class, feel comfortable speaking in front of others and are able to maintain a "B" average. The students in the Student Council meet once a month and are expected to report information to their class and guide their classmates in projects that will serve the community. These projects include helping at the annual School Walk for Diabetes, as well as Jump Rope for Heart fundraisers. Each year the Student Council also sponsors a Hat Day at school. The staff and students are invited to contribute $1.00 for the privilege of wearing a hat at school. These donations are used to help a needy family at Christmas time.
