ABC Run #127 was Saturday, 3/19/17 at Robyn Walter’s home. Great event with a total of $825 donated by 42 runners that attended plus two runners that mailed a check. Thanks so much for supporting the McLean County Child Protection Network! If you are a State Farmer and you donated $25 or more, please submit your donation to State Farms matching program.
It was a good day to run – 37 degrees, cloudy, breezy. Runners chose between a 3-mile and a 6-mile route. Those that ran the six mile route got a refreshment stop (sports drink, water) at 3 miles. Kevin Fahling and Erin Furimsky turned this event into a 15 miler by clocking 9 miles before our official start, then were kind enough to slow down and let me run with them. Back at the house, Robyn Walter and Gregg Chadwick were great hosts, organizing the food buffet and mixing mimosas. Once again, this was one of the most fantastic post-run food fests! Thanks much to the following runners for the great food:
Robyn Walter – spiced buckwheat pancakes, chocolate pumpkin muffins, mimosas
Gregg Chadwick – bubble & squeak (you’ll have to google this)
Meg Anderson – coffee cake, sausage/egg/hash brown casserole
Stacy Sheridan – egg/veggie casserole Dennis Roesch – bananas
Bruce Sutter – bagels & cream cheese
Katy MacMann – hulk muffins
Tammy Knippenberg – almond chocolate milk
Judy Bauman – fruit
Lisa Sparks – Watergate cake Kevin Fahling – chocolate chip cookies
Great event! Where else can you get such a great brunch with a great bunch of people and know that 100% of your donations go to a great cause? We have now completed ten runs for the McLean County Child Protection Network (six of them hosted by Robyn & Gregg) with total donations of $7,918. The total for all 127 ABC Runs is $112,564. Thanks again for the food, donations, and friendship.
