Fun times

This past Saturday we staged a 5k at McGlynn's Pub in Bear, Delaware. The 5k was in memory of Jane Volk who lost her fight with multiple myeloma. 310 registered with 298 finishers made for a very successful event. Doug White was able to measure out and certify a new 5k route in the residential neighborhoods. Runners were commenting that this route is "one of the fastest 5k's in the state." All refreshments were donated by local merchants including 300 hot dogs and rolls plus volunteers baked muffins and cookies to go along with the pasta salads, soft pretzels, and fruit. Michelbob Ultra was provided as part of our Race to the Finish Line Restaurant Series. Thank you to Tom and Renee Ridenour who spear headed this fundraiser. And special thank you to Bob Ashby and the staff at McGlynn's.
