SMCS RUNNING TEAM PARTICIPATED IN 5K in WILLIAMSPORT

St. Mary Catholic School running team students participated in the 5K in Williamsport over Memorial Day weekend. The proceeds of the run went to help fund a WWII Memorial for the town.

The coaches encouraged the kids to participate in this race for a few reasons, most especially to perform a civic duty for the Washington County community and help celebrate Memorial Day with a true purpose. After the race, the coaches asked their running friend, Gil Crumrine, to address the kids about the significance of this weekend.  Mr. Crumrine is a Vietnam Era veteran who shared with the kids his military responsibilities, answered questions from our runners (and parents), and told the kids the real meaning of Memorial Day (not just a long weekend). Mr. Crumrine’s children also attend St. Mary Catholic School.
