The 7th Yvette M. Palmer Purple Pinkie 5K/10K was a solid success.
Through the efforts of 33 of our District RCs plus enthusiastic runners including Interact teams, over $28,000 was raised. With the tripling by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation this translates to over $84,000 for the fight against polio.  That is over 112,500 doses of polio vaccinations!
Congratulations to "DGwannabee" and Race Chair Extraordinaire Herb Klotz for a fantastic result.
Special thanks to MSR participants John Oesmann & Bailey,Tom "Running Man" Kolepp, VP Janet Kolepp, Secy Val Walk, Treas. Jean Searfoss and handler Ron, who Koa pulled around as needed!
