Newton Running Sponsors Livestrong Challenge 10K

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.
