Jan 13 - The Olathe Running Club is collecting donations for Kristy McRoberts' family to help with medical costs. The Garry Gribble's Running Sports stores are helping collect money to forward off to Jason Gregg with the Olathe club. You may drop anything off at the store. Checks should be made payable to the Olathe Running Club. - DJ Hilding, manager, GGRS

Jan 9 - Kristy McRoberts was struck by a car while running in Olathe yesterday and suffered serious injuries. She is in intensive care at this time.

Kristy has been a member of the Olathe Running Club since August of last year. Jason Gregg, club president, has asked that I relay to each of you the importance of having identification on you while running. Kristy had no identification and it took the police several hours before they were able to identify her and notify her family.

Thank you for keeping Kristy's family in your thoughts and prayers. Be careful out there. - Janice Woolery, RRCA, Kansas rep
