The Right Track Run
The Lancaster City Track Club, part of the Lancaster PAL program at The Mix at Arbor Place, is hosting the 1st ever “The Right Track Run” on Tuesday, May 17th at 4pm. The event will raise funds to send a team of students from School District of Lancaster to California for the US Track and Field Junior Olympics. Last year 14 students attended with one being named an All-American in two categories. The race is between six schools from the district with the winning school receiving a trophy in honor of their accomplishment.
Lancaster City Track Club has made an incredible impact in the lives of young people in Lancaster City. The program was created by Derek Jennings, a teacher at Wheatland Middle School, to give students a positive outlet in the summer months. Since its creation the program has grown and given students the opportunity to travel all throughout the country and secure college scholarships for track and field!
The Right Track Run is made possible due to generous support from Wiley’s Pharmacy, Schultz Transportation, Auntie Anne’s Pretzels, Joel’s Painting, Creative Carpentry, and Rick Barnett.
