The event was co-sponsored by LUHSD’s Health and Safety Committee, which supported the effort by providing food and refreshments at The Game on Oak Street. According to Assistant Superintendent of Administrative Services Gene Clare, “We achieved our goal to raise awareness about the importance of daily physical exercise. As educators, this was an opportunity to lead and set a positive example for our students.”
The next TUPE activity is open to the community and is scheduled in conjunction with the Bell Game between Freedom and Liberty high schools on Saturday, Nov. 6. Participants will begin a four-mile walk-run around the track at Freedom High and continue up O’Hara Avenue, Second Street and Oak Street to finish circling the track at Liberty High.
The $20 registration fee includes a T-shirt and post-race refreshments, and proceeds will benefit the Freedom and Liberty High School Cross-Country and Track and Field programs. For more information, call Jenny Wilson at 925-625-5900, ext. 3810 or e-mail email@example.com.
