Students of TGS were very active the weekend of October 12-13. Saturday, they were downtown at 7:30 to participate in the 2013 Bridge2Bridge 5K, 12K and half marathon Run. Several faculty and parents were also there and everyone was wearing the new Kingsfishers Running Club T-shirts. A ninth grader, Joseph Skerman ran the 12K and placed 1st in this age category.
“Crossing the bridges was the most difficult thing,” says Joseph ” I felt like I was going to fall over and die.” However he kept going and a crowd of Kingfishers greeted Joseph as he sprinted across the finish line.
On Sunday, many students, faculty, and parents gathered for the One Georgetown Walkathon. Leaving First Citizens Bank at one o’clock, the group traced a five-mile path through historic downtown Georgetown. Then everyone gathered at Portofino’s Restaurant for barbecue and drinks. The walkathon raised over $1,100 for the Front Street Fire Relief Fund.
