94 runners came out on a cold, rainy Saturday morning to participate in the 8th Annual Panther Prowl!
Pitman High School senior Anthony Razze took first place overall with a time of 17:24. Sara Loew finished fifth place overall and took first place for the women with a time of 20:33.
For the first time, the National Anthem was performed before the race by a fabulous quartet consisting of Pitman High senior, Riley Van Oyen, juniors Abby Donohue and Virginia Uyehara, and sophomore Grace Mazzola.
The PEF raised over $6,300 for Pitman schools! These funds will support mini-grants for all five Pitman schools.

The Pitman Education Foundation was organized in 1994 by four Pitman parents who wanted to provide additional educational opportunities for their children. Since that time, the PEF has given hundreds of mini-grants to teachers from all five schools, averaging $400 to $500 each, for a total of over $140,000 to pay for technology, supplies, books, equipment, and field trips not funded by the school district. The PEF especially tries to support STEAM and ELA projects throughout the entire school district. These mini-grants have positively impacted the lives of thousands and thousands of Pitman youngsters, including your children!
To ensure the PEF thrives even when the economy is not, we have established a trust fund. You can help by making a donation, becoming a member of the PEF, supporting the Panther Prowl as a sponsor or as a runner, or volunteering during the Panther Prowl.
