Sherando High School hosted its annual Thanksgiving Day 5K again this holiday season. This year’s race had a turnout of
approximately 650 runners, and stretched from the Sherando track through Sherando Park before circling back to its start.
Matthew Lofton finished first for the men at 17:02, and Candace DeLong led the women with a time of 18:24. Runners paid $25 to $30 to participate, much of which will go to pay for 50 to 60 low-income elementary school students’ participation in a
before-school and after-school program known as “basicREC.” The money also pays for athletic fees for the low-income children participating in the People Lending Assistance to Youth program, known as “PLAY.”
