Perfect weather, high turnout for Trek for Hope

trek-for-hope-017trek-for-hope-019More than 100 runners and walkers trekked through Granville Sunday morning during the 3rd annual Trek for Hope.

“Overall it was a great day. Great community involvement to support a great cause,” said organizer Peter O’Brien.

Numbers were up from last year’s race; 15 children participated in the 1-mile fun run, 32 ran in the 10K and 70 finished the 5K.

Runners were recognized by group and overall. Lou Pauquette left his mark on the board, finishing first in the 10K in 38.37 minutes, and he came in second in the 5K race in 18.111 minutes.

Just a fraction of a second ahead of him was mens and overall 5K winner Brandon Thomas.

For the women, Kelly Ahlfeld came in first for the 10K in 43.57, and Whitney Van Buren was first overall for the women and in her age group at 23.44.

The event benefitted the Haynes House of Hope, a comfort-care home for the terminally ill.
