I'm a firm believer that an idea is only a simple thought unless you move into action and make it a reality. In 2007, a group of School 12 teachers made their idea a reality. They established the School 12 Running Club. Through hard work and determination, were able to develop their idea into a tradition.
On May 3rd, 10:30 p.m. at the Joe Bruno Stadium, the 2009 Literacy Run/Walk will take place. Pre-registration for the 5K race is $15, with the fee increasing to $20 on the day of the race. The Children Fun Runs ($6) begins at 9:30 a.m. and the Youth Mile ($10) begins at 10 a.m. Registration forms can be downloaded at, www./vorc.org, or by calling Literacy Volunteers at 274-8526.
The School 12 Running Club has two purposes. One is to get students moving and to introduce them to a healthy lifestyle. The other is to give the children something constructive to be involved in, helping to keep them off the street. I encourage anyone reading the Blog to support this wonderful project. Kudo's to the students and teachers who make this happen!
