When the Walworth County Fair gets here, it means it’s time for the athletes on the Delavan-Darien High School girls swim team to run around… Elkhorn.
In what has become a tradition, the DDHS swimmers took part in the Fair’s Run United 5 Mile/2 Mile Run/Walk race to benefit the United Way of Walworth County. It’s the third year in a row coach June McClellan has gotten the team to take part.
“They look forward to running in it,” McClellan said. “They actually ask me about it” at the start of the practice season.
It’s a workout. It will help the girls in their swimming. It helps out a great cause. And, participation in the run by the swimmers is just another example of how the Delavan-Darien School District gives back to its community.
That’s what you call a “win-win” for everyone!
Great job, ladies!
