St. David School Rocks!

May 13, 2013 - Cold temperatures, rain, sleet and snow did not stop St. David's Roaring Runners from participating in Sunday's “Sudbury Rocks- Race, Run or Walk for Diabetes”. St. David Catholic School students have been training for the past couple of months for this race. Through their after school running club, they learned about healthy food choices, how to prepare healthy meals and snacks, the importance of daily physical activities to a healthy lifestyle and how to pace yourself when running in a race. They learned about diabetes and raised money for the charity at school. Local community volunteers ran with the students in the 1 km Sudbury Rocks Race because their teacher and coach, Terri Lynn Lepage, was herself running the half marathon.

“It was a wonderful experience for our students and all of us adult volunteers. It was cold and wet, but we had a great time. Once they started to run, we did not hear a single complaint about the weather. I think this experience has become a great memory for our students and I think there is a very good chance we'll be back next year!” stated St. David Catholic School Principal, Dawn Wemigwans.
