Run for Hops 5K/10K
Despite rainy conditions at the Run for Hops 5K and 10K, Team Dr. Monica Scheel Dermatology came out in force and shined on the course. Our team of ten was comprised by five office members and five family members. Unfortunately, Dr. Scheel was out of town and unable to participate but she joined us in spirit.
Cory McCord, a well-known triathlete in the local community and our only team member to run the 10K, placed fifth in his division with an excellent time of 43:48 (7:03 pace).
Team leader Shirley Pratt finished the 5K in 24:38 (7:56 pace) and won a pack of coffee for the office for her 1st place division finish. She collected a nice trophy for the team’s participation in the Corporate Challenge and also volunteered at the event working registration before the races began and acted as course sweeper after her race.
Other team members from our office, Danielle, Alyssa, Charlene and Jennifer, enjoyed the 5k at a more leisurely pace and finished with smiles on their faces.
What a fun, healthy way to kick off our weekend and raise funds for a great cause, PATH (People’s Advocacy for Trails) Bike Ed program!
