Neal Elementary Community Hosts Walk for Hunger

WALDORF, Md. (Nov. 3, 2009)—More than 100 Mary B. Neal Elementary School community members and local athletes joined together on Saturday Oct. 24 for the school’s first five- and one-mile run/walk event to raise money for Maryland’s Harvest for Hungry organization.

Proceeds totaled $2,700 and benefited the Kids Helping Kids campaign. The top runners were recognized for their completion times at an awards ceremony held following the race. The top three students in the one-mile run were Jay Hall from Berry Elementary School, Emily Haws from Westlake High School and Christian Coombs from Neal.

The top male runner in the five mile race was Christopher Jones of Waldorf, and the top female runner was Crystal Rapp from St. Mary’s County.

Additionally, the top runner in the 12- to 18-year-old age group was Patrick Jones from Waldorf, and the top runner under the age of 12 was Jett Hall from Waldorf.
