VIDEO: Hugh Mercer Fun Run
START OF RACE
At Hugh Mercer this afternoon, the students did a “fun run” in support of P.E. teacher Molly Roohi competing in the Ironman Triathalon in Hawaii.
The run was around bus loop right after school ended.
Since Roohi learned she would be participating in the competition, the school has done lots of things to teach the students about the race. For example, everyday they learn a new fact about triathalons, Hawaii or Roohi.
About 60 second graders completed the the loops around and got a prize at the end.
