R.I. High School Runners Dress Up, Lace Up for Tufts Health Plan High School Inspirational 3K

PROVIDENCE, RI – On Sunday, September 20, more than 650 student athletes from high schools across the state competed in the 7th Annual Tufts Health Plan High School Inspirational 3K. A race day feature of the CVS Health Downtown 5K, the road race encourages teams to compete in a creative costume contest before hitting the pavement in downtown Providence for a 3K race.

From American pride to social media themes, dozens of high school track, cross country and other sports teams showed off their creative and fun school spirit during the pre-race costume contest. Judges found the East Greenwich High School girls field hockey team to be the most spirited with their “deflate-gate” costumes, earning them $750 for new team uniforms.

“Our High School 3K is a great way to show students that exercise, especially with friends, can be fun,” said Marisa Fusco, Director of Client Services at Tufts Health Plan. “Embracing healthy habits at an early age, like running, plays an important role in lifelong wellness. Tufts Health Plan is committed to helping our community find ways to do this.”

Additional team costume themes included Harry Potter, U.S. women’s national soccer team, ninjas and more. All participants received jump ropes and Frisbees to continue to support fun fitness activities.
