May 8, 2007 -
The Grade 2 and 3 students at Pius XII Catholic School participated in the 'Sudbury Rocks Race' in downtown Sudbury on Sunday, May 6, 2007. The one kilometre race started at the YMCA on Durham Street. The children ran down Durham to Beech Street around the corner to Elgin and back up Elgin Street to the YMCA.|
The students at Pius XII Catholic school trained hard for more than a month for the race with representatives from the Running Room and have completed the Kids Fit fitness tests. The studentsí fitness scores improved so remarkably that the Running Room suggested that the students enter the Sudbury Rocks Race which is also the qualifier for the Boston Marathon.
Proceeds from the race went to the Diabetes Foundation.
