Tim Kennard 10 Mile River Run
ASTON, Pa. (January, 2013) - Geiger Pump is once again proud to be a major sponsor of the Tim Kennard 10 Mile River Run. This is the 10th continuous annual running of this event and Geiger's 10th year acting as a major sponsor as well. The event, which takes place on Sunday morning, March 10, 2013 will also host a 5K Run and 5K non-competitive walk. Both the 10 Miler and 5K begin and end at Salisbury University's Maggs Physical Activities Center. The 10 Miler and 5K (3.1 miles) wind through the beautiful neighborhoods surrounding the University and the Wicomico River. The 10 Miler takes runners into downtown Salisbury!
Reason to Run/Walk - Timothy Kennard, 48 years old, and father of a 7 year old son, passed away on March 11, 2004. He fought a courageous battle against renal cancer. Tim is missed by his family and fellow running friends. This run/walk is in his honor, with proceeds going, as Tim requested, to help children and animals. This year the proceeds will help: Coastal Hospice, specifically for pediatric cases and programs for grieving children who have lost a sibling or a parent to cancer; the Salisbury Horizons, which provides support, education and hope to children from economically disadvantaged families; also, Coalition of Caring, a fund for our animal friends in need.
