Sunday’s Cove To Clover Race Raised Around $35K; Link To Results
Sunday’s second annual Cove to Clover 5k fundraiser race for the Highline Area Food Bank and Highline Schools Foundation for Excellence raised “around $35,000,” according to race organizer John Nelson.
To put this in perspective, last year’s inaugural race brought in $12,000, which, at the time, was a “huge surprise,” according to Mike Werle, Executive Director of the food bank.
Some interesting anecdotes about the race itself:
- The first Unicyclist to ever complete the course was Kevin Williams.
- The oldest runner was Clyde Sparks, 74, of Normandy Park.
- Four 69-year olds also finished:
- Robb Shirley, Seattle
- Jack Freeman, Seattle
- Penney Hall, Normandy Park
- Jan Drago, Seattle â€“ King County Councilmember who fired the starting gun in Normandy Park!
- There was a four-way tie for youngest, registered at Age “0” (we’re pretty sure these kids were all in strollers, so thanks Moms!):
- Phyllis Ahlerdice, of Seattle
- Anuraag Sanga, of Burien
- Yvetti Garcia, of Burien
- Karen Hartrig, of Seahurst
Over 1,000 runners were registered for the race, and here’s a link to the results, which are searchable:
