Run Mary, Run

1
On Saturday, August 31st, a large group came together to support Mary Ashley Barber by running a benefit 5k with the proceeds going towards her medical expenses. Mary Ashley has already undergone brain surgery earlier this year, and will receive a kidney transplant during the fall of 2013. Although the run was supposed to take place at 7pm, a storm ended up canceling the event shortly before. After hearing that the event had been cancelled, many of the runners decided to show their support for Mary Ashley by running the 5k regardless of the inclement weather.
