March Mudness Mud Run obstacle course

Students from Gauldin Elementary participated in the March Mudness Mud Run obstacle course on March 13, a challenging course that has participants run through mud pits, tires and logs, and climb over walls. The students represented Downey and won first, second and third place. Alex Gaytan, an educator with Gauldin, won second place for his age category. "It was amazing to see these fourth and fifth graders crawling to the finish line and not giving up," Gaytan said. "I would say they learned that even if you have to crawl to the finish line, you always finish what you start no matter how hard it gets!" ********** Published: April 9, 2010 - Volume 8 - Issue 51
