AWB Wackadoodles Running Club Train and Run the 1 mile and 3K Freihofer Kids Runs

For the past seven weeks, 38 students in grades 3, 4, and 5 at A.W. Becker have been training to run the 12th Annual Freihofer’s 1 Mile and 3K Kids Runs, which occurred last Saturday, June 4! Out of 18 possible 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place distinctions for the 3k race, eight were awarded to our WACKADOODLES runners and WACKADOODLES alumni (now in Middle School). Big thank you to advisors Mr. Herwick and Mrs. LaDue for supporting this program, as well as the AWB PTA for funding the WACKADOODLE t-shirts and to Ms. Waddingham for making them.
