The 7th annual NHCS Teacher Trot is geared towards encouraging students, staff and entire community wellness and is meant to motivate everyone to be more active on a daily basis. More than 600 participants joined together to support NHCS health and wellness in the first year of this event and it has grown annually. This event is not only a 5K for the entire community, but also a chance to celebrate the completion of the “Couch to 5K” program for school staff members.
