LOUISA COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — A teacher in Louisa County is going the extra mile, once again, to help her students.
Katherine Fletcher will run 50 miles from Louisa County High School to the State Capitol in Richmond to raise money for scholarships during the annual Lion Pride Run. Since the Lion Pride Run started in 2016, it has raised over $60,000.
Fletcher will start her run at 11 p.m. on February 17 at Louisa County H.S. and finish around 10:30 a.m. the next morning at the State Capitol Building.
“What we want to do is send a message that #TeamLCPS supports educators and students across Virginia, and we value the efforts educators put in every day to positively impact our students, as well as the diligence of our students,” Fletcher said
In 2018, Fletcher ran 100 miles in 24 hours to raise money for her school division.
