Dec 21
- RunLawrence adopted a family through the Lawrence Holiday Adopt-A-Family program.  Becky McClure purchased and wrapped the gifts and Dee Boeck purchased the grocery store gift card and delivered all to the Ballard Center for distribution to the family we adopted.

Dear RunLawrence members, I had a friend who was at the Ballard Center when the families came to pick up their packages. The families were all so very thankful for the gifts to help make their holiday better. The kids who came in with their parents were so excited to carry out the packages.  Thanks so much to runLawrence for making the holiday brighter for our adopted family. - Becky McClure

Erin Rogers with her birthday shirt.Dec 9 - I’m writing to brag about my wife, Erin (Rogers).  She completed her first half marathon (Rock'n'Roll) on Sunday in Las Vegas on her birthday!  Her longest race before Sunday was the Rock Chalk Run 10K in June 2008.  She trained hard for Vegas and was thrilled to cross the finish line.  I’m really proud of her.

A close up of her shirt, which reads “Erin’s first half marathon is on her birthday!”  The back says “Don’t need nothin’ but the finish line,” a reference to the post-race concert by Poison front man Brett Michaels, who indeed closed the show with “Don’t Need Nothin’ But a Good Time.” - Todd Rogers
