Yay Team!

6th Annual 5k Run/Walk

Saturday, October 1


Let’s hear it for Guy Coppola, the only runner on the RCGC team, who came in second in his age group. Walkers included Christine Froehlich, Linda Phillips, Milli Piccione, Barb Morse and Theresa Zink. Way to go RCGC team, we’ve raised $4320 to date! We had a lot of fun and managed to finish the race before it started raining.

Many thanks to all of you who made donations to support the team effort. The funds we raise benefit our education program, library and gardens – each contribution makes a big difference in our small budget. Want to help us meet our $6000 goal? Donations are being accepted through November 1, and you can make a contribution on-line here, or send us a check (RCGC, 5 Castle Park, Rochester 14620) or charge by phone (585-473-5130) or email gardencenter@frontiernet.net
