Rain doesn’t deter 5K fundraising run for food pantry

Thursday, August 8, 2019 by LINDA DEIBERT in School

The Girls on the Run club was scheduled to have their season ending 5K run at the Lehigh Parkway, but due to the weather it was canceled and there was no rain date.

The students were devastated so Jill Berlet, principal of Weisenberg Elementary School generously allowed the club to use the school grounds to complete their goal.

A track measuring of 5K in length was set around the school allowing the girls and their running buddies to complete their goals in running a 5K.
