Green Vale's Friday after-school running club for girls, "Pacers", participated in the Seaford Wellness Council's 16th Annual "Hot Chocolate 5K Run/Walk" as the culmination of a fall season full of wellness, fitness, and nutrition education, camaraderie, and female empowerment through the feel-good aspects of running. Green Vale had over 60 racers, including Pacers members, parents, and six teachers, with surprise appearances from Mrs. Bontempi and Mr. Gross.

While racing and competition is not an emphasis of Pacers, Green Vale's participants fared quite well! Athletics Director Sarah Jones placed 3rd in her age bracket and GVS students finished in the top three slots in the girls 10-14 division: Logan Elie, Kiki Grace, & Annika Wriedt. Lana Alvarez was the fastest in the Under 9 division.
