This post comes to us courtesy of Major Scott LaRonde, who organized the first-ever Iraq Freedom Livestrong 10K on October 25. Major LaRonde contacted Newton about the race a few months ago and we were proud to lend our support. We provided shoes to all the podium finishers as well as t-shirts and giveaways.
According to the Major, over 615 participants ran the 10K course through the Green Zone and over $21,000 was raised for cancer research.
The team at Newton Running extends its deepest gratitude to the men and women of the Armed Services who are serving our country at home and abroad.
