For the tenth straight year, the Saegertown Cross Country team will hold the Out-Run Cancer Run in June to benefit cancer research. The previous location for the run was Woodcock Dam, but this year’s event will be held on the track of Canon Memorial field at Saegertown High School on Sunday, June 4 from 8 a.m. until noon. Anyone can participate, and National Honor Society members will receive service hours for participation.
“For the last 10 years proceeds have been divided in half, benefitting the cross country team and breast cancer research. This year we have chosen to go a different route and give half the proceeds to the Yolanda G. Barco Oncology Center Benevolent Fund, and the other half will go to the cross country team,” said head cross country coach Bill Hetrick.
Sponsor forms are available in room 226. Some snacks and drinks will be provided, but plan on bringing your own as well. Senior cross country captain Ben Haylett will be DJing, playing tunes to keep you moving. You must have your sponsor sheet with you so mileage and money owed can be verified. Plan on arriving at least 15 minutes early for instructions. This is a rain or shine event. Any questions, email Mr. Hetrick at firstname.lastname@example.org.
