Every year Axel's school has a fundraising event called Jogathon. The kids raise money for their school and participate in a running race. The race format is simple: How many laps can you do on a fixed running course in 30 minutes? Axel takes this VERY seriously and won his age group last year in Kindergarten. How would he do this year?
World class marathoner and Mission Hills resident Meb Keflezighi, winner of both Boston and New York City Marathon, gave great support to the kids (his kids are also at Axel's school).
Axel completed 24 laps this year.
