Humana Rock 'n' Roll Dallas Half Marathon
March 27, 2017
On Sunday March 19th, a group of just keep livin students from our Dallas-area programs participated in the annual Humana Rock ‘n’ Roll Dallas Half Marathon. The runners – from L.G. Pinkston, Eastern Hills and Sam Houston high schools – were able to challenge themselves while also having a lot of fun with their peers, and are now basking in the sense of accomplishment after completing this challenging race! j.k livin participants were able to finish strong, even while battling warmer-than-usual early-spring temperatures. Perhaps it was the extra support they received from JKL partner, Brooks Running Co., who not only created a large banner wishing JKL runners luck in the race, but also donated new running shoes to all JKL participants! Says Pinkston student and JKL member, Jenaro, “The feeling I got when I crossed that finish line was exhilarating!” We’re so proud of our JKL runners and so grateful for the support of Brooks Running Co., who really helped take this event to the next level for our students!
