The 5th annual event is in the books and what a beautiful morning in Concord for a 5k! A HUGE thank you to all our volunteers, thank you for spending your time on a Saturday morning helping us have a successful event. We had a great turnout and once again, thanks to you, we grew our event by 40-50 runners with a tally of 207 runners. I can’t describe what it feels like to stand up in front of a group and see so many people coming out to support kids affected by Batten Disease. I got a little emotional, I hope you don’t mind. We got a great surprise when Chris and Eric Lowden, who has Juvenile Batten Disease also, came down from Raleigh to attend. Brandon, Jeremy and Eric enjoyed the “pace car” again this year and Cam got to wave the American flag.
A shout out to our top three finishers in the one mile fun run, all of whom are 1o and under:
2. Karina Mitchell
3. David Szymborski
We are a disappointed that we had some technical difficulty with the timing system since this was the first year we used it and we are still hoping that they will be able to retrieve the data from the machine to publish results. At this point we only have a few runners recorded on the system. I will update this page as soon as I have more information from On the Mark Sports.
