$1,500 raised for campus sign
More than 70 runners took the streets last Saturday as part of the Williams Fun Run to raise money for a new sign on the secondary school campus.
A record 74 participants — 36 of whom were junior or senior high students — raised $1,500 for the project. The oldest runner was 70 and the youngest, in a stroller, was 11 months.
All participants were monitored on the course by the Williams firefighters, and Williams High cheerleaders were stationed roadside to help as well.
While the organizers emphasize participation over competition, there were top performers in various age groups. The fastest in the one-mile race was Daniela Plaza, and the fastest in the 5K was Fabian Ruvalcaba.
