Runners woke up today to a new world record in the marathon, set by Wilson Kipsang in Berlin. The combination of inspiration and the warm, sunny day led a record crowd (681) to raise a record total ($12,500) for the Sun Life Financial Movement Disorders Research and Rehabilitation Centre!
Four loops of fun, purple and gold everywhere, steel drums, and a fantastic post-race barbecue topped off a great day.
Congratulations to all finishers of the race, except the football player carrying the time chips of several of his teammates. Just kidding, we love the WLU varsity teams!
