The top three fundraisers awarded during a ceremony at the event on Sept. 8 include James Dobrich and Desiree Davis, both of Erie, and Emily Smeltz of Indiana, PA. Patrick Eller, who has led the fundraisers for five years in a row, placed fourth in 2018, followed by Dr. Kate Stark, Daniel Wisinski and Sara Forman.

More than 20 participants qualified as fundraisers in 2018, raising a minimum of $500 to receive a free registration, with 13 of those exceeding the minimum amount in donations.

The top three fundraisers received prize packages donated by fundraising sponsor Scott Enterprises.
