After the 5k and 1 mile fun run were complete, the main event of the 100 yard dash began. Students ages prek – 6th grade each had a chance to see how fast they could
Our special guest for the morning was Mr. Ivory Crockett. Mr. Crockett is the fastest man in the world holding the 100 yard dash record of 9.1 seconds. We are honored to be able to have Mr. Crockett attend this event year after year. To learn more about the Ivory Crockett Story, visit: http://www.wgsdfoundation.org/ivory-crockett-story.html.
The morning wouldn’t have been complete without the help of Chris’ Pancakes to serve up thousands of pancakes at the Pancake Breakfast inside the WGHS Cafeteria. Families gathered to have breakfast, spend time with friends, and have a chance to participate in kids crafts and purchase Webster Groves Spirit Wear provided by the Webster Groves Parent Club.
The WGSD Foundation would like to thank our sponsors who made this event possible. Thank you to The Moneta Group, Winning Streak, Ameren and the Webster Groves Baseball/Softball League. Their support allows us to continue this rich tradition in the wonderful community of Webster Groves.
Save the date… Next year’s race is scheduled for October 21st, 2017
