Westview Run Club Participates in the Race for the Future
The students and staff of WVE practices long distance running every Monday in Sept and Oct to prepare for the race that was held on October 8, 2016. Mr. Mark Messner led the charge to get as many students signed up for the 5K race. With his efforts WVE earned first place in the highest percentage of staff and student participation in the entire school district. We had 103 participants signed up. Our club is growing every year and we are so glad to be able to get additional equipment through the FUTP 60 grant program to help us grow and succeed.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Everyone tried their best to make practice every Monday and set goals for walking and running on the other days. Mr. Messner helped the students get signed up and also encouraged parents to attend and to participate. They continue the club throughout the school year and enter any race they can.
