We are so proud of everything L2R has accomplished this year. Throughout the summer, L2R members attended and ran with the Special Olympics New Albany and Gahanna Mind Over Miles programs. Through this program, athletes complete miles throughout the summer leading up to the Columbus Marathon. At the marathon, they finish 1.2 miles to total 26.2 total miles completed for the program. Four members of L2R trained with Mind Over Miles as buddies and completed the 1.2 miles with the athletes.
Other highlights from this season: This year 38 L2R members ran or walked the Columbus Marathon/Half Marathon. Additionally, over 30 members traveled to Holland, Michigan in September to compete in the Holland Haven 8k, half, and full marathons.
The 2019 New Albany Walking Classic featured L2R's walking program.
Seven members of the team raised over $1000 for Special Olympics Ohio! They have just a few more days before the fundraising season is over. L2R appreciates the support of their families, friends, The Columbus Running Company, and Brooks Running this season! Thanks so much, L2R members, for raising the bar and making a difference every year.
