Berwyn Victory Run
Great Day - Saturday, May 20, 2017
Our 16th Victory Run was super! The run was super! The kids were super! The food was super - and it didn't rain!!! OK truth sticklers - so, yes - the weather was again iffy, but it was still the 16th in a row without rain. OK, yes again, it was gray... But it was bright in our hearts and smiles - and there were plenty of smiles. Thank you Runners (and joggers and walkers) and sponsors and volunteers! Thank you to our Veterans - all of them!
