Another Berry Long Run
July 7th, 2012
I first heard of Another Berry Long Run about this time last year. Falling in love with the idea of a grassroots organization working to raise funds for our families right here in Delaware County.
In 2011 Benji ran for Nettie’s Kids and in 2010 Benji ran from Losantville to Wes Del Little League Complex to raise money for Ryan Berry who is battling cancer. Mr. Ryan’s family got a vacation and Nettie’s kids got one, too.
This year the funds will go to D.A.R.E. for programs supporting alcohol awareness.
Benji’s scheduled run is listed and the end of this post. At each stop, you can greet him, offer support and make a donation.
