Members of the DeSales Catholic School Girls Running Club, named “DCS Gotta Blast” by its middle school members are preparing for their first 5K.

The team has been meeting weekly since September to build up to run in the Historic Palace’s Tacky Sweater 5K on Saturday. In addition to the running, their training has included learning more about health and wellness and discussing self esteem.

Seventh-grade student Delaney Adams said, “I didn’t think I’d like running, but through this club it is fun. We all encourage, help and cheer one another on.”

With the physical fitness part down, the girls have been working on decorating their “tacky” sweaters -- or in this case old DeSales sweatshirts.

This running club has about 20 members and is being overseen by DeSales teachers and alumni, Cathy Fraass and Karen Rahill.

DeSales is Eastern Niagara County’s only Catholic School, welcoming students of all faiths in Pre-School through Eighth grade.  For more information call 433-4870, visit or attend their Open House from noon to 2 p.m. Jan. 31.

East Niagara Post is the official media sponsor of Hockey Day in Lockport.
