Employee wellness

Time to start training: Join the SPPS marathon team
SPPS will once again have a team for the Twin Cities Marathon, 5K, 10K and 1-mile races. We will continue the team competition against Minneapolis Public Schools employees in race events, and the district with the highest participation will win the traveling trophy.

Minneapolis won last year, so help put SPPS in the lead for 2015. By joining the SPPS team you will receive the lowest first tier price, have access to the heated corporate team tent on race day, and receive free snacks and T-shirts. Race participation will also qualify as a well-being activity for your 2015 wellness initiative. Grab a coworker, lace up your shoes and let’s win this challenge.
