Congratulations to the running RAScals for being the third fastest team at the Blue Ribbon Run this weekend! We have some marathon heroes to be proud of:

Coming in first place for the Running RAScals and first place in his age group was Clint Stalnecker.  Additionally, big congrats to first time individual medalist Kristė Drizyte-Miller, who placed third in her age group, and to Kirsten Bryant, who won first place in the women’s race.

The Blue Ribbon Run is an annual event raising money and awareness for a cure for colorectal cancer, while helping North Carolina families affected by this disease. All proceeds from the Blue Ribbon Run are donated to the Der-Cox-Bryant Supergroup at the Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center to support colorectal cancer research. All Supergroup participants were both honored and humbled to take part in this inspiring day and can’t wait to join in again next year!
