Miles for Marcie – Update

July 26, 2011

Miles for Marcie has officially become the top fundraising team in Undy 5000 history!

$13,212

On July 16, Sheri Von Jako and her “virtual” Undy 5000 team ran in honor of Marcie Kennedy, a friend who passed away from colon cancer at the age of  38. I say “virtual,” because this team was anything but! About 120 people participated in an actual 5K at Lake Quannapowitt in Wakefield, Massachusetts to show their support of Marcie and her family. A balloon release started the event, and Sheri said “I looked across the park and saw a sea of smiling faces so much larger than I could have ever dreamed of. There were so many of you and I am so grateful!”

Here are some pictures from the event. Congratulations, Sheri and Miles for Marcie!
