Last Saturday, August 26, Tatung Rotary, AST students, teachers and parents have joined me and welcomed over 3,000 runners to AST as a resting stop. This is our second year working with the Taichung City Sport Organization to sponsor a public running event.
Special thanks to Yao- Wei for leading the Red Cross Club students who generously volunteered their time to help with the event. They passed out drinks, cut fruits, and cheered the runners with African drums and their kind words. There were about 40 volunteers total, including Anthony Keen, Greta Sharp, Dan Norton, Susan Kern, 13 AST students and 18 Tatung Rotary members. There were three teachers: Derek Kensinger, Amber Chin, Kendra Hensan and two faculty spouses- Joey Chuang and Noam Eppel who participated in the Chinese Valentine race and finished strong! It was a fun filled evening and helped the larger Taichung community members learned about AST!
