Fun Run is a Sure Bet for Attendees

IFTSA Fun Run startLas Vegas never sleeps … well, the 600+ registrants who got up first thing Wednesday morning, June 27, for the 12th Annual Fun Run and Walk may not have gotten much sleep, but it was for a good cause. And even Elvis showed up to support the effort (look for him in the video below).  In total, sponsorships garnered over $81,000, once again a record high for Feeding Tomorrow scholarships. More than 15 student and corporate teams were among the participants. As in previous years, Bruce Ferree, California Natural Products, again raised the most money for a single person. Just for participating, all runners received a race t-shirt.

The race got off to a great start at 6:15 a.m. and at the end of the 3.1 miles it was clear that many were taking the “fun” run very seriously. The top three men and women runners were as follows:

Men

• David Peters, with a time of 16:22
• Christopher Charles, with a time of 17:11
• Steve Kollars, with a time of 18:45

Women

• Trella Chrisco, with a time of 22:05
• Sara Spoede, with a time of 22:06
• Amanda Charbonneau, with a time of 22:08

The list of top runners for each category is here. The list of times for all runners can be found here.
