Erie Runners Club Presents Check to BNI
The Erie Runners Club presented a check worth $7,000 to benefit the Gertrude A. Barber Foundation during a picnic held Monday, June 11. The money was raised by the more than 700 runners/walkers and many sponsors participating in this year’s Mother’s Day Race held at Presque Isle State Park.
For the second year in a row, participants had the option to run or walk in the 5k race, or to join in a half mile untimed "fun run." The run offered youngsters, families and persons using wheel chairs a greater opportunity to participate in the event.
Thank you to all participants and sponsors. We look forward to seeing you next year!
