Ragnar Relay Superstars Raise Over $7,600
On September 21-22, 2012, twelve amazing women and men took part in the Ragnar Relay Series to raise funds for GOTR NOVA. GOTR NOVA is a charity partner of Ragnar Relay, a 12-person running relay that covers 200 miles from Cumberland, MD to Washington, DC. The 12 members of the GOTR NOVA team truly "ran for the girls" and raised over $7,600 (and counting!) to help spread GOTR's programming to more schools in Northern VA.
Together with GOTR DC, the runners raised over $14,000 total for the GOTR DC & NOVA councils. Special thanks to our entire GOTR NOVA team of Running Superstars: Heather Bowman (the fearless team captain!), Jorge Astorga, Kim Copenhaver, Bill Ford, Leah Kimper, Kelly Menozzi, Juliet Neal, Raquel O'Connor, Keith Spencer, Whitney Strand, Lori Walowski, Joanna Wilson, and Deb Cobb (who unfortunately couldn't run due to injury, but did an amazing job fundraising!).
Many thanks to the companies who donated items or fundraising prizes to help keep our runners inspired: Athleta, Wegmans, Clyde's Restaurant Group, Sugar House Day Spa, and Potomac River Running. Thanks also to the hundreds of donors who made generous donations to GOTR NOVA on behalf of the Ragnar team! Want to congratulate the runners and contribute to their efforts? It's not too late - the fundraising page will be active until October 21! Donate now at: http://www.crowdrise.com/GOTRNOVAforRagnarRelayDC/fundraiser/gotrnova.
