Plans for a neighborhood run/walk had been swirling in the mind of East Towne’s President Sarah Hunt-Frank for quite some time. She’s excited to see it finally take off with the help of Craig Brittingham, Jeff Frank, Bobby Pantuso, and Mary Raebel.

“We have so many runners in our neighborhood,” said Sarah. “It just seemed like a logical thing to do, and a great way to get people in the community together.”
