What do you get when you mix fresh fruit donated from Smith’s, a great idea, a lot of participation and a little perspiration?
You get the first annual Atomic City Glow Run, held May 18 at Chamisa Elementary School.
The event had 100 registered participants and family members ranging in age from 10-month-old Linus Ploss to some who would prefer not to reveal their age.
“Last summer when we met as a new PTO we discussed new things that we could try this year,” Parent Teacher Organization President Trisha Colin said. “We had heard of color runs and night runs, and so the Atomic Glow Run was born!”
The idea was not only seen as fun, but a fundraiser for the whole family.
White Rock was a glow as participants took off for a 5K run and a one-mile fun run, all kicked off by the Chamisa Cheetah, after a few motivating warm up exercises.
“We had over 120 runners, about half participating in the one mile and the others in the 5K,” Principal Debbie Smith said. “Davey Torres finished first on the 5K. Our first place youth finisher in the 5K was our own third grader, Wakeiyo Hettinga. The one mile top finishers were sixth graders, Amy Littleton and Haley Capon.”
