Oak View organizes 5K run after students miss ‘Girls on the Run’
BOLINGBROOK – About 45 Oak View Elementary School students missed the annual Girls on the Run-Chicago 5K on June 1 at Toyota Park because their bus sat in heavily congested traffic just two miles from the starting line.
With the support of Bolingbrook Mayor Roger Claar, American Girl, Claire’s and several coaches and parents, the local girls on the run team ran its own 3.1-mile race after the final full day of class
“The events that led to most of our team missing the Girls on the Run 5k is devastating and disheartening,” Oak View Elementary Girls on the Run Coach Jamie Crouch said. “I am so proud of the way the girls handled it and unbelievably thankful for the parents, teacher and sponsors who helped us organize our own race.”
