Club Kids on the Road to Gold
Club members who participate in the Be Active: Run Happy program had a great showing at the Hershey’s Track & Field District Meet on Wednesday evening. Of the ten members who signed up and participated, all of them placed in the top two in at least one of their events. By competing at and placing in the top two at this local meet, all 10 members are qualified for the Hershey’s 2014 Washington State Track & Field Finals hosted by One Team Kids Foundation.
Club members will be treated like rock stars the weekend of June 27th– 29th.
On Friday, all qualified athletes will attend a pre-meet party at Big Al’s in Vancouver, WA consisting of a spaghetti dinner, two free games of bowling, and a $5 arcade card. This will allow our members to have some fun with other competitors from around the state.
Saturday is the big day! Members will participate in the Parade of Athletes as they take a collective lap around legendary McKenzie Stadium. After the Opening Ceremonies, the completion will begin. Kids will compete in three different divisions: 9 & 10, 11 & 12, and 13 & 14 year olds. After the meet, all athletes will be treated to a movie at Cinetopia, a luxurious moving viewing experience in town, before heading back home.
We’d like to congratulate our Hershey’s Track & Field District Meet Finalists:
Alex, Sammy, Chloe, Eleann, Soleil, Juliette, Frank, Zack, Tyler, and Jacob
