Eagle Run raises technology funds

The Calera High School PTO recently hosted its second–annual Calera Eagle 5K and one mile Fun Run, raising more than $5,200 for the school.

Despite rainy, cold weather conditions, a total of 115 runners participated in the event. Michael Marquart won for the second year with a time of 17:20, winning a year’s membership to Fitness Forever in Calera. Nathan Langner, a senior at Calera High School, was the student winner with a time of 20:39. Nathan, also a repeat winner, was awarded movie passes to the Amstar theater and a meal from Dixie Dogs in Calera. The money raised included sponsorships, race registrations and a $1,000 Walmart grant. The money will be used to purchase technology for classrooms.
