Runners and walkers support Habitat

| November 8, 2014

DSC_0053WEST LAFAYETTE – About 30 people laced up their tennis shoes and ran or walked to support Habitat for Humanity at its second annual 5K Nov. 8 in West Lafayette. “We started this because we were hoping to get a new group of people involved in Habitat and there are a lot of runners in Coshocton,” said Brittleigh Smith, executive director of Habitat for Humanity of Coshocton County. “They will run past two houses that we have already completed and a third lot where hopefully house number 15 will be built.” Everyone who finished the 5K received a medal and the top three females and males were presented with pottery from Whitewoman Pottery. Water and bananas also were donated by Baker’s IGA. “We aren’t building right now, but funds raised from the 5K will help us with build number 15,” Smith said.

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!
