Pacelli Catholic Schools hosted its 10th annual Shamrockin’ Run at Pacelli on Saturday.

Over 130 people participated to run, walk or volunteer for the event.

“It was fun for Pacelli to put on an event for the whole community to take part in and enjoy,” said Run Committee Chair Ryan Bickler. “While we had a number of more serious runners who might want to use this as a tune up for the summer running season, it’s also nice to see lots of kids and families participate as well.”
