Spring has sprung and it was beautiful on Sunday, April 24th in Central Park! Over 8000 runners participated in Run as One to raise awareness of lung cancer: the leading cancer kill in both men and women in the U.S. and the most common cancer worldwide.¹
But it was rainy Sunday, May 8 during the four mile Japan Run. The race was the opening event for the 10th annual Japan Day @ Central Park festival which celebrates the Japanese community in New York and the cultural connections between Japan and the United States.
Congrats to Nigel McGregor, Monica Merlis, Reed Edwards, Sunny Kasabwala, Nick Collins, John Bedard, Wei Wang, Katie Petereson, and Anya Javadi for repping #CHRCWomen and #CHRCMen during these races! Here are the Top 5 in 2016:
