Fifth graders from Columbia Middle School are in training for the big day–Saturday, May 17th. It’s on that day at 10 am, that a group of Jr. Soul 2 Soul runners will run from the County Park at Ocean Beach and head towards the magic forest between Lakeview East and Jefferson Road. This 5k run has a mission—to teach the life-long benefits of goal setting and exercise.

The kids have been training after school on Tuesdays and Thursdays since April 8th. They’ll continue to be coached by volunteers thru May 15th.

Each participant will be the proud wearer of a the Jr. Soul 2 Soul 5k Run t-shirt, and there are other goodies to be had.
