Walk for Williams held

| May 26, 2015

DSC_0014The 10th and final annual Walk for Williams event was held Saturday morning at Lake Park. Two enthusiastic youngsters are among the participants at the event. Runners and walkers have raised over $40,000 for the cause over the past ten years at the event. Nanci Rogers told everyone in attendance, “We appreciate all of your support over the years. The money raised goes to research, camps and conventions.” People can still donate to the cause by going to the Williams Syndrome website at Williams-Syndrome.org. Four Williams Syndrome adults attended the event and were applauded. Rogers said to watch for announcements for an event that will take place next year.

About the Author ()

I live with my beautiful wife Nancy on a small farm just outside Coshocton. We have been married for thirty two years and have two grown children, Jessica and Jacob. Jessica is married to Aaron Mencer and they are employed with Coshocton City Schools. Jacob is a sophomore at Kent State University. I graduated from River View High School, have a Bachelor’s Degree from North Carolina Wesleyan University and am actively involved with the Roscoe United Methodist Church, serve on several local committees and am a member of the Coshocton Kiwanis Club, having served as Past-President. I love reading, especially military thrillers, the Civil War and history in general. My goal is to write a novel. My wife and I are also AdvoCare distributors and encourage anyone wanting to lose weight, gain energy and better health to explore AdvoCare at our website; www.fortunes4advocare.com. I love the media field, innovative technology and have worked in newspapers for over 30 years – in fact, my first job was delivering newspapers. The Beacon is a dream made possible by the support of this community and a great team. I hope to continue serving Coshocton County for many years.
