‘Pirates on the Move’ community group enjoys Southeast’s new track

At the opening ceremonies for the new Southeast High School track last week, Superintendent Bob Dunn announced the track would be open to the community to use when athletes at the high school were not using it for competition or practice.

“The community was instrumental in helping Southeast build the new track,” said Dunn.

With that declaration, Pirates on the Move was born.

Cindy Fesemyer, retired teacher and track coach and current varsity girls golf coach, suggested a weekly gathering of community members to walk the track.

The first group of Pirates on the Move saw 37 adults and youth take over the Southeast track from  6 to 7 p.m. on Sunday.

“We are a community of friends that will be there for each other as we move together,” said Fesemyer, who was thrilled at the first turnout.

“Anyone of any physical ability can join us to walk, run and workout,” said Fesemyer.

The group also supports Southeast’s running teams and promotes other running and walking events in the area. 

Community members only need to stop in one of the school district’s offices, swipe their ID or driver’s license to receive a confirmation to take to the Southeast Board of Education office to receive a pass.

It is not necessary to register for Pirates on the Move. For additional information, follow the Facebook page “Pirates on the Move.”
