Young Runners do well at Home Run

The weather was perfect, attendance was up and the runners were fast at the Third Annual Home Run 5K, held Saturday November 7th at Rotary Park in Newark.  Over 60 runners and walkers, ranging in age from 9 to 73 came out to show their support for LCCH and those who need housing assistance.

With several quick, young runners leading the pack, Ryan Meadows from Trinway, OH, age 14, was the first to cross the finish line in just 17:29. The first place female, Emma Glass, age 15, a runner for Newark Catholic HS, finished in fourteenth place overall, with a time of 25:14 For more pictures from the race, go to our Facebook page and check out the Home Run photo gallery. 

Over 30 runners took home door prizes (Thank You contributors!) and everyone enjoyed a hot dog lunch courtesy of The Oaks at Bethesda and at Northpointe. Other major sponsors for the event included Interim Healthcare, Kohl’s and Newark Management.  Also on display were some mixed media pieces by Alexandria OH artist, Michele Adkins, whose collage sculptures depicted the frustration of a homeless couple seeking work. 

Held in November to coincide with National Homeless Awareness Month, the Home Run 5K is an awareness event as well as a fundraiser. All proceeds from the race support LCCH programs.  Thanks to all who participated…we hope you will join us next year for the Fourth Annual Home Run!
