Lakehill Preparatory School's 18th Annual Trek for Tech, the Parent Faculty Club's signature fall event, combined all the right elements: two great races, dedicated sponsors, enthusiastic volunteers, and a raffle with fantastic prizes. Uncertain weather couldn't keep the dedicated runners away. The results were a great time for all who attended, and a lot of money raised to purchase new technology.
Students, families, and faculty members put their best foot forward in the one-mile Fun Run, while a large crowd hit the pavement for the 5K chip-timed race.
Mohamed El Saed was the first place overall winner with a time of 21:50. Tenth grader Jason Herron-Loza finished was the top student finisher with a time of 21:55. Sixth grader Avery Owen was the top overall female runner and the top-finishing female student, with a time of 23:40.
Organizers report that 326 people registered for this year's races. The Trek Committee is still counting the monies raised through sponsorship, registration, and technology purchases.
The second grade won a cupcake party for having the highest percentage of participation with 76%.
The Pasta Lunch, a carb-loading celebration, was held on Friday. For $5, diners enjoyed pasta and pizza, sponsored by Guess Who's Coming to Dinner.
The Trek Committee thanks those companies, individuals, and families who supported the race through underwriting and equipment purchases, and the faculty, NJHS, and parent volunteers who helped the event run smoothly.
Lakehill thanks John and Karen Owen for chairing this event again and for their efforts in making Trek for Tech a huge success!
