Nearly 225 runners and walkers took part in the April 22 Gift of Life 5K sponsored by Bethlehem Central Middle School and Rotary District 7190. The community race/walk event, organized by students and staff, helped to raise money for lifesaving surgery for children in impoverished countries around the world.
The Rotary is a partner of Gift of Life International, which provides doctors and nurses to treat children with heart disease in their country of birth.
The weather was perfect for the race and prizes from Metabolic Meltdown were awarded to some of the top finishers. There was also a family fun day with bounce castles, face painting, ice cream from Emack and Bolios, and breakfast from Four Corners Luncheonette.
Top finishers included three BC students. They are listed below:
Males
1 – Paul Mueller

3 – Gordon Su – BCMS Student
Females

2 – Erin Rightmyer
