The 10 th Annual
Ralph K. Thomas 8k Run, 2.5 Mi. walk
For the past 10 years, several of us in the community have organized and put on a road race, to help raise money and awareness for diabetes, a disease as we know that affects many tribal members. This race also honors and recognizes a great Penobscot runner, Ralph Thomas, who is a member of the Maine Running Hall of Fame and is a role model to our youth. The race is also a way to generate interest in running and walking within our community, which as research shows, helps in combatting diabetes. The event is a great way to exercise and then meet and talk over a light meal. We are also looking for donations for the event and this can be done until Friday November 2nd.
