BCRR WEEKLY UPDATE February 22nd to February 28th




Congrats to all those who raced in the Space City 10 Miler! Many BCRR members placed, and Allyson Serrao received local elite for the upcoming race year. Thank you John for the always handy porta-potty & tent!! And thank you Teresa and Ron for hosting a fantastic post-race party!

THANK YOU to those who volunteered for the Darling Dash – Mike, Bob, Rosie, Eric, & Lara – You make-up an amazing team!!

Wednesday at Valhalla

BCRR Member - Heidi Zimmerman is sponsoring the tab at Valhalla this week in support of her 7th grade student who is raising money for the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. Her student must raise $700 to be a member of the Youth Crew. This is a cause very near and dear to her, as this 7th grader’s mother is a breast cancer survivor. Please consider making a donation to an important cause and the future of a runner.
