JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (WJHL) – The Science Hill Cross Country Team has announced they will be participating in the St. Jude virtual 5K fundraiser on Saturday.
According to a release from Johnson City Schools, the team is planning to participate in a Science Hill-only race on the Tweetsie Trail at 8 a.m. on Saturday, September 26.
The team says since they have fewer meets this year, they wanted to have a fun race and raise money for St. Jude.
The release says a representative from We Run Events will time the race, so runners will have a recorded time.
The team hopes each athlete can raise $100 for the organization.
As of Friday, the team had raised $5,675.
