Medicine Hat News - - FRONT PAGE -

Elm Street School turned its an­nual River Flats Run on Fri­day into a fes­tive street car­ni­val. On a beau­ti­ful au­tumn day, more than 1,000 stu­dents from all over Medicine Hat turned up in droves to dance to the mu­sic of Ma­honey, cel­e­brate life and take part in a re­fresh­ing run through the beau­ti­ful River Flats neigh­bour­hood Elm Street School calls home.

The par­tic­i­pants in the run could not have asked for a bet­ter day, said prin­ci­pal Ka­t­rina Cor­bett.

“It’s been a won­der­ful day,” she said. “This race just brings all of our schools in the city to­gether as a big com­mu­nity. It’s just a great way to get ev­ery­one to­gether and cel­e­brate.”
