Join this smiling team! Susan, Kerrie & Jenny have race day under control.

Looking for a fun way to make a difference? The 5th Annual Grocery Run takes place November 1, 2014 and planning is well underway. We’ve raised more than $64K for local hunger programs since 2010 and this is going to be our best year yet. Join us!

Our team is led by race directors Kerrie Merz and Susan Fox. Team leaders include:

  • Jenny Hutkowski, Race-Day Logistics Queen and her legal counsel Michele Crain.

    Bonny

    Director Emeritus Bonny is all smiles on race day.

  • Sarah Wisbey, branding genius.
  • Post-Race Party Girl Jenny Bay
  • Becky Picone, shepherding 100+ race-day volunteers.
  • Director Emerita Bonny Claxton handles the budget & in-church registration.
  • Christy Lutzer, inside communications.
  • Paul Bishop & Bill Bay, course management & Safety Sams.
  • Registration Boss Carol Eisenman.
  • Dan Taylor, on-course music & mayhem.
  • Dale Maddock, print & race day Pied Piper.
  • Candice Lucas, all manner of kid-fun.
  • Molly Perry, spirit wear super-model & sales.
  • Ellen Rye, PR & crowd funding guru.
  • Betsy Cox & Julie Kopp keep it real at the awards table.
  • Griff Vinton gets us cleaned up & out of there before lunch.
  • Lorenda Guaranski, Darby Thompson & Roxanne Boyer at-large.

The full planning team meets two to three times per year. Lots of small-team, task-specific meetings happen in between—sometimes via email, text and in passing at coffee hour. It’s all hands on deck on event day.
