It was a beautiful day for the Run this year! We were so excited to have College Recipients, as well as some of the Parents come volunteer at the Run. For the Recipients to take time our of their college life to be at the Run meant a lot to the Foundation and the Runners and Walkers. This gave the participants an opportunity to meet some of the College Recipients. It was rewarding in so many ways to all.
