On Saturday, Dec. 9, Girls on the Run had their celebratory 5k race. This race took place at UCF and was hosted by Track Shack. The girls practiced twice a week for several months in preparation for this 5k. At each practice, they also learned lessons about staying healthy, emotional well-being, standing up for yourself and the definition of true beauty. Additionally, the girls designed and organized their own service project to better the community. This season, the girls chose to take donations to help the Big Dog Ranch Rescue (BDRR). This rescue has been busy flying in pets from hurricane locations (Puerto Rico, Houston, and Florida Keys) to their shelter in Florida. They work to rehabilitate and find homes for the pets when they have been displaced from storms. We are so proud of the Girls on the Run team at Eagle Creek.
The ECE Panther Chorus performed a holiday show for WFTV Channel 9 Toys for Tots Drive last month. ECE Student Government Association, K- Kids and Chorus joined together in a schoolwide toy drive and brought toys to the station.
