ABC Run #130 was hosted by Meryl Brown on July 16. A nice total of $1,647 was donated to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital thanks to the generosity of 26 attendees plus 7 runners that could not make it but donated anyway. The donations will help members of the “We got the runs” team meet or exceed their fund-raising goals. More importantly, the donations help kids by helping St. Jude provide free lifesaving care and also helping St. Jude continue its groundbreaking research. The kids can benefit even more when employees or retirees of a company such as State Farm submit their donations for the company match.
The venue was great: nice location, home, backyard, and pool. The weather was good for running and for using the pool.
The course was a relatively ordinary adventure heading West on the Constitution Trail to Vernon Avenue (2.5 miles from Meryl’s home). The menu was really great as usual. Thanks to Meryl Brown for hosting and all who provided additional food.
We’ve held a total of 15 ABC runs for St. Jude and the total of those runs is $18,014. The total for all 130 ABC runs is now $119,544. Thanks so much to everyone for all of your support!
ABC Run #131, to benefit The Seedling Theater will be held at the Schumacher home on Saturday, August 12 at 7:30 a.m. (doors open at 7:00).
