5K Running Club
The 5k Club is composed of a group of kids who love to run. Most are also members of the cross country team but it is not a requirement.
This year, the club participated in St. Mary's Love Run in West, Texas. There were over 200 participants and the club came away with some great places. Ronald Harden 1st Place Overall, Karina Hernandez-3nd Place Female 13-18, Teresa Antunez-2nd Place Female 12 & Under, Patricia Ramos 2nd Place Female 19-29. We had runners compete with some great times. All final results can be found here.
The 5k Club helped in the planning and running the Hillsboro Junior High Turkey Trot this past November. We had over 100 participants and 30 volunteers. The students had group runs to prepare for the 5k race day, made motivational running posters, and helped to set up the event.
With the proceeds from the Turkey Trot the 5k Club donated canned goods to Hillsboro Interfaith Ministry, toys to the local "Christmas For Kids" Toy Drive, and were able to participate in other 5k runs.
