Everyone arrived excited and ready, except Arleigh who was still ill. Emory inevitably fell ill while we were waiting for the race to begin, and is now in bed with a temp. So Addie and Stella were the only ones who actually ran in the race for Retrak, an organization to help African street children. To learn more about Retrak, you can click here.

Prior to the race, African drummers were playing, and the kids were welcome to join in. So they did.
Way to go Addie and Stella! This was one run where everybody won something.
