Second annual Addy Dash held

| July 28, 2014

WARSAW – The second annual Addy Dash 5K was held Saturday morning, July 26 at the River View Community Park in Warsaw. Over 150 participants came together to support the event, with proceeds going to the AddySTRONG Scholarship Fund.

Corey Miller finished first in the event with a time of 16:44.351 and Drew Everhart placed second at 17:08.973. Perry Webster, who along with his wife Tracy, coordinated the event, said, “This is a great event. It’s to raise funds for a scholarship fund for a River View student going into the medical field. It’s amazing – we had right at 50 people register today – from what I understand we had 125 pre-register. It’s an amazing turnout for the second year. It brings a great feeling to me that this many people come out to participate and also help sponsor this event.”

“It’s overwhelming – Dave and Alana – I know it means a lot to them, Dave said that it is overwhelming to him that this many people come out to help support this event. It’s another great morning for such a great event. I want to thank each and every person that helped. Without the volunteers and the runners this event wouldn’t happen. It’s an amazing group of people that come together for an amazing event.”

Stephanie (Lapp) Snyder said about the support showed for her and husband Pat, “It’s a great, great thing to see this. We were expecting it to be down a little bit from last year but we are really not down that much – to see people still come out to remember Addy – and now Grady – it’s breathtaking. I have had so many people come up and ask, “What can I help you with?” Just to know that I have that support – and anytime I asked someone – they said ‘yes’ and went and got it done. The support that we received has not gone away even for one second, we have people helping us, supporting us, asking us how we are, and doing anything and everything for us.”

“To see our community come together and the part of our family that is not from this community – they have commented so many times on how great Coshocton is. The AddySTRONG scholarship is probably going to be changed to SnyderSTRONG and we were able to give out two $1,000 scholarships this year and we’re hoping to be able to continue that tradition. Thank you to everybody for their support.”
