Uncle Irvin: Kudos to Run2Shine, Inc.

12/06/2016 11:02AM ● By Richard Gaw
Run2Shine, Inc., the fundraising wing of The Mushroom Cap, just donated $15,000 to three Kennett area charities.
On Oct. 15, nearly 700 runners participated in the first annual half-marathon founded by Karen DiMascola and Sarah Nurry. Both DiMascola and Nurry are runners who decided to promote a half-marathon to raise money for local charities, just like the tremendously successful Kennett Run. Kennett Run race director J.J. Simon, together with his wife, competed in the run and sees the Mushroom Cap 13.1 as a future partner. Corporate sponsors included Victory Brewing, KaboBurritos, the State Street Grill, M-n-M Catering and the Paradocx Winery.
This kind of local outreach is contagious, and has a salubrious effect on our community.
