Run for Kids Pictures and Results
I have posted the pictures I took during the race Saturday, on the Run for Kids website. Here is a link to the pictures. 2012 Run for Kids Pictures. I hoped to take a lot more, but! Also, Suman Silwal has put together a very good video from the race. It is on his website mruns.com. Thank you Silwal for an outstanding job on the video and for sharing it with us.
I think these results are now correct. Here is a link to the results page on the Run for Kids Challenge website. PFD Results
I want to thank all our sponsoring restaurants that provided the gift certificates we raffled off Saturday. If you live in Birmingham, please go by these establishments and thank them for their generous contribution to the race. You might have dinner while you are there. They are all really good and some of Marye Jo and my favorites.
Cantina Tortilla Grill, Bistro V, Carrabba's Italian Grill, Brio Tuscan Grill, Edgar's Bakery, Brava Rotisserie Grill, Crazy Cajuns Boiling Pot & Nabeel's Cafe and Market.
I listed Nabeel's last for two reasons. First, Nabeel's not only donated two $50 gift certificates, the certificates came in a Nabeel's Cooler containing a bottle of Nabeel's Famous Salad Dressing and a Nabeel's T-Shirt. Second, Anthony Krontiras, Owner of Nabeel's, ran the 12 Hour Run. He was #33, wearing the fluorescent Green Gnome shirt. Thank you so much Anthony and great job. By the way, Nabeel's is located in Homewood, right across from Homewood Park.
And please don't forget Paul Champion. He was the man passing out all that wonderful Sorbets and Ices from the truck beside the pavilion. He also kept a team running in the 50K. His store is located behind The Olive Branch in Cahaba Heights, on Cahaba Heights Rd. and across the street from the Vestavia Police and Fire Department.
Sometime in the afternoon Melissa Allphin, the representative from Camp SAM, did the honors and drew 5 winning names in the raffle. Here are the results.
1. Stan Mackin, Birmingham: Nabeel's & Brio
2. Dan Ripple, Birmingham: Brio & Nabeel's
3. Linda Scavarda, Toney, AL: Bistro V & The Cantina
4. Mohammad Givi, Birmingham: Carrabba's, Brava & Crazy Cajuns
5. Neal Gerhart, Montevallo, AL: Edgar's, Carrabba's and Brava
