Students participate in River Run

North Florida School of Special Education had 14 students with varying intellectual disabilities participate in the Gate River Run on Mar. 9, for the
second year. The students, who range in age from 10-21 years, have a mantra of “Never Say Never” inspired by the popular Justin Bieber song of the same name. Director of NFSSE Sally Hazelip and running coaches, Ellen Hiser and Garrett Opper, along with Adaptive PE coach Amber Bixler, encouraged the team to master The Green Monster and cross the finish line together.
Hiser said, “These students trained in rain, heat and cold running countless laps on our school’s track to prepare for the run. We could not be more proud of their perseverance and for overcoming the challenges they face with their varying intellectual and physical disabilities..
