Sykesville, PA – Hundreds of people made their way through Sykesville recently for the 39th Annual Run or Walk for Someone Special!

The total donations for this year are just over $60,000.

Attendance was down this Sunday, likely because of nasty weather.

359 people participated in the event and could choose to either walk two miles or run five miles.

Two mile winners:

  • First place – 39-year-old Nathan Dongille from DuBois with 11:55 for his time
  • First place female – 14-year-old Libby Gianvito from Punxsutawney with 15:33 for her time

Five mile winners:

  • First place – 25-year-old Samantha Betta of Apollo with 32:46 for her time
  • First place male – 57-year-old Doug Craft of Punxsutawney with 33”54 for his time

The money raised by the event goes towards The Arc of Jefferson and Clearfield Counties’ recreational clubs and Camp Friendship, a free summer camp for children with special needs.

Thanks to everyone who attended, and congratulations on this massive amount of fundraising!
