DALTON -- Last Tuesday, while many folks hit the polls, students and staff at Nessacus Regional Middle School in Dalton hit the track at nearby Wahconah Regional High School as part of its "Elect to Move" Election Day walkathon.

A total of 458 students, plus teachers and staff, participated. Nearly 20 community businesses and families sponsored the wellness-oriented event, organized by Nessacus nurse Mary Jo Erickson-Connor and the Nessacus PTO.

Although the weather was cool, the kids kept warm by walking or running to a playlist of upbeat tunes ranging from Survivor’s "Eye of the Tiger" to PSY’s "Gangnam Style."
