Healy Student Council hosts inaugural Pioneer Walk/Run

The Pierz Healy High School Student Council will host its inaugural “Pioneer Walk/Run” Saturday, May 19, at the Healy High School tennis courts.

The event includes a two-mile walk and a 5K run, with proceeds used for the Student Council Scholarship Fund. The Pierz Student Council currently gives a $500 scholarship and is hoping to increase that to two or three $500 scholarships to be given annually.

Registration for the event begins at 8:30 a.m. The 5K run starts at 9 a.m., followed by the two-mile course walkers.

The cost to participate is $20, which includes a T-shirt and refreshments. T-shirts are available while supplies last.

Forms for advance registration are available at Red’s Auto and Bait, JM Speedstop and Farmers and Merchants State Bank in Pierz. They must be mailed no later than Friday.
