Why Do Trojan Men Run
Every weekend you can see Pottstown High School Trojan Men lead by their club sponsor and leader of The Trojan Nation PHS teacher Mr. Dave Woodley running in a 5K race to support worthy a cause, help those in need and bring awareness to social issues.This past weekend Team Trojan Man traveled to Bethlehem to support the Lehigh Valley Fellowship of Christian Athletes as they participated in the Christmas Classic Candy Cane 5k. Running in Elf beanies and pants the team was easy to spot on the race course. Not content to support one cause at a time the Trojan Men supported the NoStigmas organization by wearing their “Mind Your Health” t-shirts! NoStigmas is an organization that focuses on mental health awareness and providing services for individuals experiencing mental health related issues. The team had a strong showing with Senior Jon Jon Oister placing 3rd in his age group while Brandon Gebhard came in 9th and Woodley finishing 13th in his age group. Mr. Woodley said, “I asked the boys what kind of charity they wanted to support for our last race of the season and they both agreed mental health was a worthy cause as that is something we focus on behind the scenes of the Trojan Man program! The only mental health 5k was a virtual run, which you do on your own, so we were able to combine that with the Candy Cane 5k and support two great charities at the same time!” BUT WAIT Trojan Men still had more to do; After the race Trojan Man traveled to the Dollar Store to purchase $300 worth of items for their Stuff-A-Stocking Drive for the Pre-K Counts students in the Pottstown School District! YOU can help! A $10 donation will buy a PRE-K student a stocking to be hung for the holiday with eight hand pick items . Contact Mr. Woodley by email Dwoodley@pottstownk12.org to bring joy into a young child's heart. Another weekend of making the world a better place, one Trojan Man at a time! Read More.
