Linder, Sweeney take home the syrup

Posted
TOWNSHEND — On Saturday morning, a cheerful group of friends and neighbors converged on the Townshend Common for the ninth annual Grace Cottage "Spring into Health" 5k walk and run, which is a benefit for the local community hospital sponsored by People's United Bank. While there were hundreds of "Girls on the Run" across the state concurrently, 98 people ran or walked the Townshend course, and plenty more participated as volunteers and cheering fans. An additional 17 people took part in the event "virtually" from remote locations.



First place male and female finishers Jorgen Sweeney of West Dover and Elkanah Linder of Townshend were rewarded with tins of syrup from Smith Family Maple, and "Most Experienced" participants Norm and Martha LaMoria of Newfane went home with salsa from Drew's Organics. Dozens more left with raffle prizes from Drew's and from Big Picture Farm.



Complete race results are listed below; although it's worth noting, many chose to simply walk the course in support of Grace Cottage.



The 10th annual event will again take place on the Saturday of Mother's Day Weekend — May 11, 2019.
