UISD holds "Let's Move for Scholars" Run

By  | 

LAREDO, Texas (KGNS) - Over 500 Laredoans put on their running shoes to help the UISD class of 2018.

UISD administrators, staff, students and the community ran the sixth annual Let’s Move for Scholars 5K Run over the weekend.

The annual event is held to raise funds for UISD’s partners for scholars, which provides scholarships to graduating seniors from each of the district’s four high schools.

UISD’s Gloria Rendon says last year they saw a huge success and they believe this year was the same.

The district has received a 10,000 grant from Blue Cross Blue Shield to go towards the student scholarship fund.
