Coach inspires healthy habits through running club

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - We are sending a High 5 to Oakhaven Elementary School for inspiring healthy habits through a running club.

Jeremiah Bland is the volunteer coach for the school's running club.

Bland says the club is about teaching the importance of nutrition.

Each month, the team participates in at least one 5K race.

According to SCS, the Oakhaven running club is one of nearly 30 in the district.
