Griffin Elementary school runners raised $1,086 for the American Heart Association at the schoolâ€™s annual Grifâ€funâ€ Fun Run. Despite unseasonal icy temperatures that caused Katy school closures the day before, the intrepid students and their families sped around the Beckendorff Junior High track.
Led by the Griffin P.E. teachers Mark Fobian, Tara Hauhe and Lauren Adams, assistant principal Elise Allen and D.J. for the day music teacher Jason Ritchie everyone was cheered across the finish line at a fun filled event with a serious mission.
â€œAt Griffin we want to give back to our community,â€ says P.E. teacher Mark Fobian. â€œOur fun run is a wonderful way to help others and help our students discover that fitness and healthy living are great choices. It was amazing to see the enthusiasm and determination to cross the finish line. Whether it was kindergarteners running 200m, fifth graders powering through 800m or whole families completing one mile.â€
