On Thursday, March 28, the R.E.A.C.H. Foundation held its annual Middle School Track Meet event in Nathan Shapell Memorial Stadium at Yorba Linda High School.
Student athletes from the Placentia-Yorba Linda Unified School District’s (PYLUSD) seven middle schools competed against each other in events like high jump, long distance running, long jump, sprints, and more. This included the Matadors of Bernardo Yorba, the Cubs of Kraemer, the Panthers of Parkview, the Trailblazers of Travis Ranch, the Falcons of Tuffree, the Eagles of Valadez, and the Bobcats of Yorba Linda.
Following each event, medals and ribbons were awarded to the top three finishers as they stood on the winners podium for all to see! All PYLUSD student athletes did an outstanding job at the meet while making their individual schools proud!
This event would not be made possible without the generosity of the R.E.A.C.H. Foundation, an all-volunteer, education focused, 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization in benefit of PYLUSD students district-wide.
At the beginning of March, their organization held their largest fundraiser of the year, the Shamrock ‘n Run 5K/2K race at Yorba Regional Park. Just like in years past, it was a great success and continues to afford R.E.A.C.H. the ability to suppose academics, athletics, and arts in PYLUSD. Thank you, R.E.A.C.H. Foundation!
