They came, they saw, they conquered!!! Thousands of middle school students from all over Southern California participated in the Mt. Sac Youth Day event yesterday. This was our first year attending this event and we registered 60 students from Santa Ana. Our students participated in a variety of track & field events throughout the day and more than 20 earned medals in their heats and several earned more than one! Not only were our students competitive, but well behaved and gracious - cheering one another across the finish line.
The nonprofit Kevin L. Armstrong M.D. Memorial Sports Foundation creates opportunities for at-risk students to reach their full potential academically and athletically. Our RunStrong programs help kids succeed in life. Get involved!
"Thank you for helping me to follow my dreams of running with the Foundation. The Foundation is helping new athletes emerge and maybe you will not only see them run in races, but in the Olympics". - Kenia DelaCruz, Carr Intermediate School
