Carlbrook School would like to extend a special thanks to both the student government and Student Life Coordinator, Jenny Buckland, for their hard work in making this event such a success. In addition, Carlbrook would also like to acknowledge Andy Coe, Dean of Students, for kicking off the event and offering a powerful moment of silence for those with friends and family members who have been directly impacted by this disease. Student Life and Advising faculty members were also instrumental in providing support and encouragement to runners throughout the day, including David Smith, Robin Jones, Katherine Myers, Nicole Nardozzi, Brian Tubbs and Shelley O’Bar.
