Run for our Youth

Supporting a good cause
The second annual “Run for our Youth” event was held this weekend at the Tyrone Area High School. Events for the day included a 10K run, 5K run/walk, kid’s .25 mile run (400 meters) and a kids’ lollipop fun run. The “Run for the Gold” youth one mile race was held to commemorate the gold medal won by Emily Ingle at the 2006 state championships. Emily is the only female athlete from Tyrone to win a gold medal at the state level in any sport. Following the races, awards were given to the top male and female in each age group and overall winners of the 10K and 5K runs. Medals were also awarded to all “Run for the Gold’ participants. There was a large turn-out for the day’s activities with around 50 people participating in the 5K and 10K races. There were also kids of all ages gathered at the high school track for the children’s races. All proceeds from this event benefit the Tyrone High School track and cross country boosters.
