IT’S not ev­ery day chil­dren get to train with a NRL star but that dream has be­come re­al­ity at one Townsville school.

South­ern Cross Catholic Col­lege have won the Bul­letin’s Train with Morgo Chal­lenge af­ter stu­dents reg­is­tered in their droves for the Townsville Run­ning Fes­ti­val’s 5km Ju­nior Fun Run and Walk.

Stu­dents were urged to sign up for the Townsville Bul­letin 5km Fun Run and Walk for the chance to meet Cow­boys star Michael Mor­gan. The school which reg­is­tered the high­est per­cent­age of stu­dents would win the prize. South­ern Cross Catholic Col­lege busi­ness man­ager Re­becca Vec­chio said there was a lot of ex­cite­ment among stu­dents over the chance to have a train­ing ses­sion with Mor­gan.

“It’s great that our stu­dents who are out­stand­ing at rugby league and re­ally love sport will have this chance,” she said.

“It’s great that Cow­boys play­ers make them­selves avail­able for these things so the kids have some­thing to as­pire to.”

The Townsville Run­ning Fes­ti­val is on Au­gust 6.
