29th Annual St. Hilary Cross Country Run
St. Hilary Catholic School hosted their 29th annual cross country run. The school was excited to have an outstanding 215 students participate this year! There were 10 schools participating from across the region.
This event is only made possible through the dedication of our volunteers and our generous sponsors! We were pleased to once again present all finishers with a medal as running is hard work and all of the students who participated should be proud of their efforts and their achievements!
Ethan Rose a grade 7 student at St. Hilary summed up the day when he said, "All that training sure paid off!"
