FAIRFAX, Va. - The boys of Park Lawn Elementary School had their Young Men in Motion 5k event on Saturday November 20th at Hains Park in Washington, D.C. Lesley Hassen, a former George Mason softball player and current P.E. teacher of Park Lawn Elementary, is the coordinator of the Young Men in Motion Event. She asked the George Mason Softball team to participate in the 5k and run with the boys as 'buddy runners.' Each boy was paired up with 1-2 players and ran side by side to the finish line. The boys train for this event during P.E. in school and enjoyed having college athletes running with them. The event was extremely successful on both ends and the boys as well as the Mason team had a great time.
