They had a chance to run, jog or walk as a part of "The Ultra Extreme Marathon Day."
It is the kick-off event for "Kohl’s Kids Fit for Life" program.
In addition, the school received a check from kohl’s for more than 16-thousand dollars.
That money will help fund programs teaching students about living a healthy lifestyle.
“I think that the more awareness that kids have the more knowledge that they're armed with. I think they have more ability to make better choices concerning their health, whether it is eating a candy bar after school versus, you know, eating something that is healthy,” said Anthony Eubanks with the Southeast Alabama Medical Center.
At the end of the day, students ran a total of 385 miles.
