Running club dreams come true

Second-year Dudley Elementary teacher Tony Neels has always wanted to start a youth running club.

“I had always talked about doing it,” Neels said. “I really didn’t know what response I would get.”

One thing is for sure-—he didn’t expect this.

Neels was hoping for maybe 15-20 participants. He got 50 to sign up.

The newly formed running club is for third- through sixth - graders. It meets every Tuesday and Thursday at 8:30 a.m.

“These kids have already logged over 200 miles in just a few days,” he said.
