Kids of Steel
On Saturday, May 6, a group of Riverview students ran the Kids of STEEL Kids Marathon. Despite the chilly, rainy weather, the kids had smiles on their faces from start to finish! The kids and their accompanying adults ran a one-mile course from the North Shore into downtown Pittsburgh where they crossed the official Marathon finish line. Post-race festivities were held in Point State Park. Each finisher received a medal and a goody bag. The Kids Marathon served as the final mile for the Kids of STEEL exercise program that began in January. Congratulations to the Kids of STEEL participants!
