Six year old Jun Park played the Star Spangled Banner with confidence as nearly 600 students from Fowler Elementary looked on.
The music helped wrap up the school's participation in a nationwide event.
Students showed their support for victims of the boston marathon bombings.
"We have more energy and we can run a lap around our school. And it's easy for us," says Cole Harrison, a fifth grader at Fowler.
Despite their young ages, many of these students knew the tragedy and the reason their school was holding a Run for Boston.
"They ran all the way and all they got was a big explosion at the big finish," says Caroline Case, a third grader at Fowler.
"When they were doing the race someone threw out a bomb and three people got killed and there was this little boy who was waiting for his dad and the son got killed," adds Aubrey Glidewell, a second grade student at Fowler.
This isn't the first time Fowler students have showed support for victims of national tragedies.
"On 9/11 we had flags all the way around the campus. We had them on the fence. During the Tsunami and the hurricanes, we've taken donations. New Orleans was a big one and the kids, they are just ready to give," says Principal Tania Rushing.
Give... by taking a patriotic walk to join the millions across the country who are walking or running for Boston.

Following today's run, Fowler students gathered to take a group picture.
The photo will be posted on the Run for Boston Facebook page to show the school's participation in the nationwide event.
