Wolves Cross Country Hosts 2nd Annual Fun Run

GREEN RIVER– The Green River High School Cross Country team hosted their second annual Fun Run fundraiser on Saturday morning, September 23.

The cross country team raised $1500 by selling GRHS Cross Country t-shirts and recruiting community members to run a 5K, which is 3.1 miles.

The money raised will go towards buying hoodies for the team and will also help pay for the Nike Cross Nationals.

Nike Cross Nationals is a national championship race in which qualifiers from eight regional championships across the country compete.

The Fun Run started off with a kid’s race, in which the kids ran from Edgewater Park to the Green River Bike Park and back. The kids were excited to be able to participate in the race.
