Race for veterans

| March 31, 2014

COSHOCTON – About 50 people braved the cold weather on Saturday morning, March 29, to race for veterans. The I’ve Got Your Six 6K and Memorial Mile was held at Lake Park and was conducted by the Veterans Assisted Living Out-Reach (VALOR) Clinic Foundation. The organization was established in 2010 in Pennsylvania by Mark Baylis, a retired Special Forces Sergeant Major, to provide support to homeless veterans and those suffering from PTSD. Baylis is making plans to expand his organization into Ohio and proceeds from the event will help support the SGT Kevin Lannon Veterans Sanctuary in Fallsburg, which will serve veterans in Coshocton, Licking and Knox counties. Julie Border and Shanna Weaver were happy to participate in the event in honor of family member Raymond Border, who died while serving his country. “We like to do anything we can in his memory and to help all veterans,” said Julie, who is Raymond’s mother.

I started my journalism career in 2002 with a daily newspaper chain. After various stops with them, I am happy to be back home! I graduated from Coshocton High School in 1998 and received a Bachelor of Arts in Communication in 2002 from Walsh University. I also earned several awards while working for daily papers, including being honored by Coshocton County’s veterans for the stories I wrote about them. I am honored and ready to once again shine a positive light on Coshocton County. I also am the proud mother of a little girl named Sophia!
