Running St. Anne Angels are on the Move
Students at St. Anne Catholic School in Hanmer have recently started their Angels Running Crew. This running club is in its second year, and students were eager to hit the ground running.
St. Anne students in Grades 4 to 8 have signed up for this activity that will lead them to a healthy lifestyle that includes getting regular exercise. They are encouraged to set their own personal goals throughout the year and persevere to achieve them. Students will learn correct form of running, proper nutrition for health, and how to build endurance to run longer distances. “I really enjoy the running club because I like participating in all the teams and clubs that St. Anne has to offer,” said Abby Gladu, a Grade 6 student at St. Anne Catholic School in Hanmer.
Students will have an opportunity to participate in various events around the city, such as the Sudbury Santa Shuffle and Sudbury Rocks Races.
With only their first practice under their belt, these Sudbury Catholic Schools students ran a combined distance of over 57 kilometres, all during a 40 minute lunch break. Some of these students even reached distances of 4 kilometres on their own at the first practice. Way to go Angels!
