The 2014 KMF Race for Ovarian Cancer
The 2014 KMF Race for Ovarian Cancer was a smashing success, raising over $10,000 for Susquehanna Health Foundation. Since 2012, the race has been able to give over $36,000 to the Foundation, which went toward their Spirit of Women and Healthy Women Programs.
In the women’s division, congratulations to Renee Popalis, our 1st place finisher from Bloomsburg, Pa coming in at 1:39:21.37; Claire Tepesch, our 2nd place finisher from Corning, NY coming in at 1:41:23.65; and Katie McKendrick, our 3rd place finisher from Painted Post, NY coming in at 1:41:23.73. Renee’s win was especially meaningful as she has run the race 3 out of the 4 years it has been organized and because she runs in honor of her mother who is an ovarian cancer survivor.
On the men’s side, congratulations to Scott Kennell, our 1st place finisher from Montoursville, Pa coming in at 1:29:02.72; Nathan Pecht our 2nd place finisher from Snow Shoe, PA coming in at 1:30:01.95; and Jim Malee, our 3rd place finisher from Williamsport, Pa coming in at 1:33:02.99.
The event was fortunate enough to have 2 ovarian cancer survivors participate. Kathy Huling from Williamsport, PA came out for the 5-mile walk and Angela Mize from Venetia, PA ran the half marathon, with her sister running beside her and cheering her on the whole way. Both Kathy and Angela demonstrated their resilience, bringing their ovarian cancer battles to the attention of the Susquehanna Valley.
