2014 Kimmswick 5K raises $50,000 for The Nancy Ratliff Medical Fund

A massive, heartfelt thank you to everyone involved in this year's Kimmswick 5K -- from friends and family to The Blue Owl to all the participants to the sponsors to the donors to the volunteers to Fredbird and everyone else who had a hand in making the 4th annual event the most successful one yet.

Between registrations, sponsorships, donations, the silent auction, the 50/50 raffle and fundraising on Crowdrise, we were able to raise an unprecedented $50,000 for The Nancy Ratliff Medical Fund this year. 

Chris Dollenmeyer won the men's division (and a Levee High Apple Pie from The Blue Owl) with a time of 18:42, while Erika Holroyd set a new women's record with a time of 18:49 to take second overall (and a Levee High Apple Pie, to boot). And Allison Turner blazed across the finish line first in the 1-mile walk & fun run.

You can view the complete results here.

We also gave away an iPad to Jen Langosch in our raffle for everyone who raised $100 or more on Crowdrise. And Shelley LaRose -- who, coincidentally, has the same birthday as Nancy Ratliff -- won $413.50 in our 50/50 raffle, though she only accepted $250 and gave the rest to the Nancy Ratliff Medical Fund (thank you, Shelley!).

Thanks so much to everyone for another great event!
