Running with the Lorain County Chapter

Saturday, June 7th was a beautiful day for a race. The Lorain County Chapter and U.S. Steel Corporation, presenting partner of the race, challenged over 100 runners and walkers to “Run for the Red”.

The 5K is an annual event for the Lorain County Chapter. U.S. Steel has been the presenting partner for the past three years.  The race began at the Lorain County Metro Parks’ Day’s Dam Pavilion where runners followed the scenic Steel Mill Trail.

Participants enjoyed fresh fruit and Mitchell’s Homemade Ice Cream along with an array of door prizes after the race. Door prizes included a Spa Basket, a Cupcake Basket provided by Sweets by Maggie, a three month pass to EMH Health and Fitness, brunch for two at the Oberlin Inn, and a gourmet tea basket from Sub Rosa Tea.

Thank you once again to all who came out and supported our fundraising efforts by participating in Run for the Red! Please visit the Lorain County Facebook page to view photos and a video from the 5K.
