Family comes together to help honor Maggie

The race coordinator told my sister if 100 runners signed up for the first year it would be considered a successful race. But, determined to help raise funds for Maggie’s School in Kenya my sister Wink McLeod posted Maggie’s Run posters all over Greenville. The radio station advertised Maggie’s Run with words “in the dessert of Kenya Maggie’s memory lives on in the walls of a school built in her memory”. With the help of her many friends and family Wink worked to make Maggie’s Run for Maggie’s kids in Kenya a success. The night before the race our family came to join Wink. My sons Mike and his family, David and Dan (who is like a son to me) came to both run and help. My other sister Katie had helped all along as well as her daughter Kim and her family. All working together to help Wink keep Maggie’s memory alive. We stayed up most of the night before the race putting up tents and doing the many other tasks necessary for a race. We were up at 5:30 to leave for the venue before people came to register. By the time the run began 300 runners were ready to run for Maggie’s Kids in Kenya! The run was a success. Plans are already underway for the 2nd annual Maggie’s Run. All for Maggie’s Kids in the dessert of Kenya, Connie Sent via Cingular Xpress Mail with Blackberry
