And…they’re off!

Picture perfect weather brought out big crowds for the Lake Highlands Junior Women’s League Run the Highlands Saturday, a good sign for their plans to beautify the trestle area near Lake Highlands High. Proceeds from the race will create a welcoming gateway into Lake Highlands, Texas.

You can view my photos from Run the Highlands here.

For decades the trestle, now busy with DART trains, was a quiet overhang painted by seniors as Wildcat tradition. LHJWL will add “LAKE HIGHLANDS” in steel lettering, and they will landscape, light and clean up the area. They presented a check Saturday for $75,000 toward the project.

If you didn’t run or sponsor a runner, it’s not too late to be part of the project. You can log onto the LHJWL website and donate here.

LHJWL members Jennifer Daniel, Lindsay Thompson, Anna Cobbs (and Henry) prepare for the race
