On a brisk morning last Saturday, December 5, more than 100 Reynolds students, faculty and staff participated in a 5K run/walk sponsored by the West Richmond Rotary Club and Richmond’s Flying Squirrels baseball team.
“Despite the 36 degree temperatures at the 8 a.m. start, it was exhilarating to see the more than 700 people that were there for the event,” said Reynolds President Gary Rhodes. “The 5k race benefited local children's charities such as United Methodist Family Services (UMFS), The Central Virginia Children's Book Bank, and The Flying Squirrels Charities. This year Reynolds set a new record of participants from a single organization with 107 students, faculty, and staff.”
Dr. Rhodes was also proud to announce the Reynolds Library team won an award for the most creative team costume!
“I would also like to thank our College Board members (all Rotarians), Steve Baril and James Lane for running in the event and Fred Babik for working with me and other West Richmond Rotary Club members to organize and host the event,” added Rhodes.
Way to Go Nutz Reynolds!
