Great runners and perfect weather team up for a successful Runners For Others race

Blessed with a picture-prefect morning, the 3rd Annual Runners For Others Ignatian 5K on Saturday, April 18th was our biggest and best ever.  Held again in Baltimore’s historic Patterson Park, both Maryland Province Provincial, Fr. Robert Hussey, SJ, and Archbishop of Baltimore, William Lori, were on hand to offer their prayers, words of encouragement and to officially start the race.

A late surge in sign-ups brought our total number of registered runners to 240, up from 206 in 2014.  This is what Runners For Others is all about.  Participants helped raise more than $16,000 for the Jesuit apostolates in Maryland, each receiving $2,100 to assist in their programs this year.

Congratulations to Brendan O’Kane who took first place with a winning time of 17 minutes, 49 seconds, and to Suzanne Andrews who placed 10th overall and first for the women with a time of 21 minutes, 10 seconds.

The turnout from family and friends was also spectacular, and we thank everyone who showed up to help cheer on the runners.  We also extend a very sincere thanks to all the race sponsors and volunteers who helped make this such a successful event.  From financial support, to in-kind donations, to people-power setting up and lending a hand on race day, we couldn’t have done it without you.

A very special thank you to our race coordinators, Chip Cooke and Bill MacSherry.  They have dedicated and sacrificed so much personal time and energy into organizing and promoting this great race.  It has truly paid off.  Hats off to you both!

See you all next year!
