We couldn’t have had a luckier weekend to hold the Leprechaun Run. The 2016 Leprechaun Run brings Gold to the weekend as runners decked out in our gold t-shirts took over Martin Luther King Drive. The morning started out a little chilly, but warmed up to the perfect temperature as our participants hit the streets.
During our opening program, TMNA Services was recognized for their commitment to the athletes of Philadelphia as they presented Special Olympics Pennsylvania – Philadelphia Director, Britt Kleine and our athletes in attendance with a $10,000 presenting sponsor check. The Celtic Flame School of Irish Dance added an Irish flare to the event as they gave a performance of traditional Irish dance. But before the race could begin, athletes Charlie Zisette and Emmett Abdo, shared a few words as well as the athlete oath and then officially started the race.
Thank you to all of our participants who attended this year’s race – we can’t wait to see you next year! HUGE thank you to all of our volunteers who made this race run smoothly, we hope to see you at more of our events!
