Run4Leah Team Photo May 26, 2013
It was a beautiful, sunny and perfectly cool day for a race. Our 70 plus runners were ready and Leah led her Relay Team by running the first leg in 1:08, and immediately claimed she wants to run the 1/2 marathon (13 miles) next year! She then joined her teamates (Sue Bennett, Lacy Bromly and Jake McPherson - below) at the finish so they could all run in together!
We are currently at $21,000 of or $26,000 goal!! Checks keep rolling in daily as well as online donations which will continue to accepted until October when a new research study will be identified for sponsorship. A heartfelt "thank you" to our team of dedicated volunteers who manned the Run4Leah/Cure NF Waterstation, the Packet Pick Up table and Run4Leah Team Coordination!! Our success would not be possible without your love, generosity and committment to Leah and CureNF.
Leah, John and John's teaching colleague Justin, await the handoff from the 2nd leg to the 3rd leg of the relay
