It’s been about a week and a half after the Colfax Marathon Relay I did. At the time, it was thought that we paced 7th in our division (women’s relay of the Government Cup), and thus not earning any money for the charity we ran for.
Easlier this week, I received a lovely email from one of my teammates….
It turns out there were a few teams ahead of us that had one or more men on their teams and were disqualified! How they figured that out, I’m not sure.
That means we took 4th! And we get $1,000 donated to the Golden Schools Foundation!
“The Golden Schools Foundation supports academic excellence in the eight Golden Neighborhood Articulation Schools so that all students in these schools have the opportunity to maximize their potential. We seek volunteer and financial resources to support our programs that enable us to fulfill our mission.” For more info on the Golden Schools Foundation, click HERE.
