WARSAW – The third-annual Run Walk and Roll could not have been given a better setup, or a better return.
Approximately 100 people under a gorgeous spring sun participated in the 5K and 35 participated in the 1-mile run.
The overall top three males in the 5K were Taylor Mills, Troy Carolus and Harrison Phipps. The top three females were Megan Metzger, Krista Nicholson and Kendra Kline. Carolus is a three-year participant taking first place the first two years before finishing second this year.
Participants from as far away as Michigan City were on hand in Warsaw for the event, which raises funds and support for Unified Track, designed to give track and field opportunities to those with special needs and abilities.
Nina Burgher, fifth grade teacher at Lincoln Elementary, made this event a class project. Her entire class ran the mile in support of the unique needs of classmates while Burgher and four students also ran the 5K.
Melinda Price wheeled the mile for the third year in a row. She was cheered on by members of the WCHS Unified Track team.
The track team heads to Kokomo this Saturday for the Unified Track Sectional with hopes to qualify for the State Meet June 4 in Bloomington.
