TASTE - CLASS - PRIDE

Thank-you to everyone who volunteered to help with the Scheell's Happy Human Race. Your help was greatly appreciated by the meet director. Below is a response from the meet organizer.

GO ROCKETS!

6 September 2021

Dear John Marshall High School Cross Country Team,

The Rochester Running Club and the Scheels Healthy Human Race would like to express our tremendous appreciation for your dedication and commitment to helping with the Healthy Human Race on Saturday August 28th at your aid stations along 20th St. SE, near the relay exchange point. You helped us to execute what was probably one of the most relaxed race days.

 

The whole event was so successful from the packet pick-up to the last person to cross the finish line. Knowing the JM High School Cross Country Team were so capable and possessed the expertise to accomplish the tasks set before you was a huge relief and you were a big part of that successful execution.

You knew what needed to be done and we depended on you to “just do it”. Your presence made so much difference and we are indebted to you for your unselfish dedication to the Healthy Human Race.
You are a great partner and tremendously appreciated.

 

Simply to say thanks just does not seem adequate, but please know that “thanks” speaks volumes. You are truly invaluable!! I hope you will join us once again next year on August 27, for the 38th running of this event.
 

You make a living by what you get. You make a life by what you give. Winston Churchill

PS…..All the best for a highly successful season!!!
