FGHS hosts track and field fund run
The Forest Grove High School track and field team is holding the Forest Grove Holiday Fund Run/Walk 5K Saturday, Dec. 16, at 9 a.m. at FGHS, 1401 Nichols Lane.
The event has no cost and includes the race, $5 pancake breakfast, and a silent auction in an effort to raise money for the track and field program. Money from the event will be used to help purchase new hurdles and equipment for the team, as well as develop and improve program facilities "to enhance the student-athlete experience and aid in the safe development of the sport for the community's youth," said Danielle Restuccia, hurdle coach at FGHS.
Participants are encouraged to dress in holiday costumes. Prizes will be awarded to the first-place runner and best-dressed.
