The fourth annual Charity Charge, sponsored by the Pittsville High School Teen Leadership Council, benefiting Jeremiah’s Crossing, was a big success.

Thanks to all who participated at the new location — on the trails of Jeremiah’s Crossing — and ran or walked the 5K mudder, the 3K or 1K route. The recent rain made the “mudder” more of a wader, and caused race officials to have to alter the route at the last minute so participants wouldn’t have to swim. Participants had a great time for a good cause. A photo collage has been posted on the Jeremiah’s Crossing Facebook page.

Thanks to B2R Timing for volunteering their expertise to help time the events. A full account of the race results are listed at the website www.b2rtiming.com. Click on “results.” The results of the 5K mudder are:

Women age 17 and under: First Celeste Huff, Second Allie Henke; Women Age 18-49: First Brittany Johnson, Second Jessica DeWitt; Women Age 50 and up: First Lynette Pupp, Second Kathy Gunderson.

Men Age 17 and under: First Martin Schwanebeck, Second Jeren Mancl; Men Age 18-49: First Travis Zalewski, Second Richard Heinz; Men Age 50 and up: First John Licht, Second Rich Frederick.

The results for the 3K were not available at this time. Check the Jeremiah’s Crossing website, www.jeremiahscrossing.org, for times and places.

Thanks to the myriad of volunteers who helped us with trail preparation, publicity, onsite registration and race day activities. Thanks also to our wonderful sponsors: Kwik Trip, Walgreens, Water Quality Store, Rose Bowl Lanes, Politos Pizza, Central Wisconsin Jazzercise, Shaw’s Wrecking, Anytime Fitness, Subway, Chips, Family Video, Water Works & Lighting, C Note Music, Curves, Karen’s Wines and Steins and Nails by Sara.

We hope you will join us next year, to help us “run for those who cannot.”
