Let the runners erupt at the Volcano Run
Geology Club will be holding their first Volcano
Ilion High School’s Geology Club goes on a
trip to Hawaii every two years to learn about the environment and the
culture of Hawaii. The students take a year long, after school course
to educate themselves about the ecosystem that exists in Hawaii and to
prepare themselves for what the trip involves. In Hawaii, the members
study the effects of volcanoes and other geological features on the
environment. In addition, the members participate in community service
in order to better the environment.
Due to increased travel expenses the price for
students to go on this trip has increased greatly. The price for the
upcoming trip in the Spring of 2013 has risen to over $3,000 per
student. The profits from the race help pay for the students to go on
the trip. At the registration table the day of the event, there will be a sheet of other
fundraisers and coupons that benefit the Ilion Geology Club’s trip to
