McNick students support GA 5K run

On Saturday, March 23, McNicholas track runners joined their neighboring elementary school Guardian Angels (GA) for its 6th annual Heavenly Hog Jog.  The 3.2 mile run/walk is a yearly fundraiser for Guardian Angels.

Among the track runners was senior Maria Clark, who placed third overall among the female runners. “I’m a GA alum, and I always like going back to Guardian Angels and helping the school anyway I can,” Clark said. “The fact that McNick and GA are so close to each other makes it really easy to stay involved.”

In addition to the runners, McNick was represented by “Rocket Man,” the school mascot who came to cheer on runners. Junior Sarah Ruwe was the McNicholas student dressed as the mascot, and she said she was happy to help encourage kids as they ran the half-mile “Fun Run.”

McNicholas faculty were also present to support runners and spread the word about upcoming McNicholas events, such as the Experience the Arts Days on April 9 and 10; free admission for grade school students to McNicholas baseball games on March 30, April 3, and April 6; and the Junior High Preview Night on April 18 for McNick’s production of Grease.
