Continuing a beloved annual tradition, the Elwood school community enjoyed a lovely Health and Wellness Community Day on May 12.
The program this year, held on the John H. Glenn High School football field and basketball court, included a competitive mile race and wellness walk; a Unified Basketball scrimmage game; pickleball; CrossFit training; a Chicken Knockout contest; face painting; inflatable carnival games; the Greenlawn Fire Department; and the John Glenn High School Athletic Hall of Fame induction ceremony.
“This event brought our community members together to experience all that is good about Elwood,” said Dave Shanahan, Elwood’s director of athletics, physical education, health and nurses.
“It was wonderful to see so many members of the community come out to support a day filled with Elwood pride,” Superintendent Dr. Kenneth Bossert said.
