ABC #113 on November 3 combined the first Tuesday night run of the season at the Anderson’s with “soup and chili night”, generating a cool $512 in donations for the Boys & Girls Club. Thanks so much to the 49 participants for the fun and your donations.
The run and party was enhanced by a couple of special events:
(1) Dan Anderson literally got lit by running in a glow-in-the-dark “ABC costume” (try to find him in the featured photo). Naturally, runners relied on Dan to memorize the new course and lead them through it. The amazing thing is Dan came up with this costume with only a day’s notice.
(2) It was Kelly Bower’s birthday, giving us a chance to embarrass her with our enthusiastic but less than harmonious rendition of “happy birthday to you” (and to add cake to the list of desserts).
Thanks very much also to everyone who donated food. We always have the greatest post-run feast! This may not be a complete list (sorry) but here is the menu that we can recall:
Randy Barnett (Noodles & Company chicken noodle soup),
Ray Ceresa (DoubleTree Hotel chocolate chip cookies),
Meg Anderson (vegetable soup, bread, angel food cake),
Sharri Pelarske (chili),
Peg Stark (snack mix),
Wendy & Dan Anderson (bread),
Denny McDowell (Avanti’s bread),
Laurel Schumacher (pumpkin cookies),
Kathy Alexander (pecans),
Erin Furimsky (apple & cheese slices),
Carrie Mack (veggie tray),
Charlie & Joyce Grotevant (veggie tray),
Stacy Sheridan (brownies),
Pat Ring (peanut butter bars),
Tom Crain (strawberries for the angel food cake),
Angela Funk (Snickers bars and Peanut Butter Cups).
ABC Run #114 to benefit the Adopt-A-Family program will be held on Saturday, December 5 at the home of Lisa and Jay Sparks. We hope to see you then.
