GTP Fun at the Red Run

Last Saturday, 530 people turned out for a fantastic event: The Red Run.  It was a beautiful morning for a little jaunt through Algonquin as onlookers and volunteers cheered us on.  Kudos to Kristen Guerrieri and Cortina Nystad for organizing such a wonderful event.  It was an honor and pleasure to participate!

Here are some pics:


GTP’s mascot, Niki, came in first for best looking dog.

GTP runners (from left):  Mary, Andy, and Maddie Cote, Belle Staurowsky, Shannon Achacki, and Bill Hanson.  Thanks!  And congrats to Maddie who won her age division!

More supporters (from left):  (um, Bill again), Sandy Ebel, Dianne Raebel, and Emily Ebel.  Congrats to Dianne who ran her 5k personal best after moving all day the day before!  Woo-hoo!

Not pictured are GTP board members, Jeff and Jenn Cunningham.  Jenn, not having run for quote “awhile”, ran the whole way – congrats!

Shout Out

Would like to give a big shout out to Belden Press in Algonquin, IL, for giving us such great brochures!  As always, job well done under tight deadline.  Thanks so much for supporting our organization!
