On Sunday, May 7, many members of our Village School community joined our student running club to participate in the 10th Annual 5K Run sponsored by the Waldwick Chamber of Commerce. Hundreds of runners and walkers turned out on a beautiful spring day to don their colorful VS shirts, tie on their running shoes and hit the pavement with friends.
The run was a huge success. We had over 45 runners (students, parents and friends) come and run/walk the 3.1 mile course. All our students finished strong and had a great time running. We had several students place in the top ten of their age group. A few students who placed top three won an extra medal and a $25 gift voucher for new sneakers. Our group won two awards, ‘Spirit Award’ and ‘Team Award’. Those awards can be seen at the front desk. One student had her motivational sign featured at the race:
“The BEST is yet to come, so ready, set, RUN!!!!!!”
The weather cooperated and everyone left the race with a big smile on their face. A huge thank you to everyone who came out to run or cheer us on. Thanks to all the parents who volunteered their time to help supervise during our outdoor training runs.
Check out the letter we got from Waldwick Chamber of Commerce!!!
