First annual ScholarDash 5K Fun Run a success

On Aug. 4, the Braham Area Dollars for Scholars hosted the first annual ScholarDash 5K Fun Run. The event was a huge success thanks to the 143 participants and the donations from the following area businesses: Grandy Lions, East Central Sanitation, Jimmy Johnny’s, East Central Dental Clinic, Edward Jones, Aurelius Manufacturing, Rock Ingebrand Funeral and Cremation Services, Salon 311, Hometown Liquor, Frandsen Bank, East Central Bank, East Central Electric, American Red Cross and Main Street Market. Thanks to the support of all the participants and donors, enough money was raised to fully fund two scholarships. Congratulations to Sam Westerberg of Cambridge and Alexa Smith of Savannah, Ga., who were the top male and female finishers of the ScholarDash. The second annual ScholarDash 5K Fun Run is scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 3, 2013.
