National Honors Society helps out with an every year occasion
NHS students will be helping out at the annual San Antonio Rock and Roll Marathon on Sunday, Dec. 4 from 7:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. This event will start around St. Mary’s street downtown and following a route through the lower part of the city. The volunteers will be helping out at the three and a half/ four mile water break. They will be handing out waters and cheering on contestants.
This opportunity has people like senior NHS member, Cheyenne Trejo, looking forward to a good morning.
“This is my first year, and I’m super excited because I’m a new NHS member,” Trejo said. “It’s an outreach, so we get a lot of hours and credit for it, so I’m super super excited.”
The event will include live bands and other entertainment throughout the route, making for a more eventful experience.
“It’s fun,” NHS sponsor and Social Studies teacher Zane Reinhard said. “It’s not your typical just run four miles or 10 miles or whatever and then go home, there’s a little more activity going on.”
Previous contestants such as substitute teacher, Mark Verdi, have enjoyed their time at the marathon as well, despite the tiring endeavor.
“It’s fun, and when you get to the end, you have a sense of accomplishment,” Verdi said. “You finish, and you think you’re having a heart attack.”
