IM ‘Couch to 5K’

Iron Mountain Public Schools will hold a 5K race for its Project Based Learning program “Couch to 5K” and Luv2run students on Thursday beginning at 1:30 p.m. Cheering fans are invited throughout the route. The race will begin and end at Mountaineer Stadium with students running down West A and B streets and through City Park. “I am so proud of these students,” said Donna Ward, organizer of the event. “They have been training hard to be able to participate and run in a 5K race. The Luv2Run children have worked on strength and running endurance for the past 2 1/2 months. The runners would appreciate encouragement from anyone able to come and cheer them on,” From left are Maddy Lancour, Monica Chartier, Khloe Jayne, Joy Kassin, Sophia Seidel, Sochia Lara, Shyann Beery, Charleigh Beurjey, Zahra Wicks and Donna Ward.
