You can imagine the treats at the end of this finish line! The Girl Scouts of the Chesapeake Bay held their annual Thin Mint 5K on Sunday, drawing more than 700 runners and walkers to Wilmington’s Riverfront. Senator Coons, himself the father of a Girl Scout, addressed the crowd before the youngest runners took their places at the start line for the traditional pre-race fun run.
And while many Girl Scout families participated, other non-profits were also well-represented. Organizations like the Y and Paws 4 People had booths at the event, while others participated in the race itself. Team Seas It recruited nearly 100 friends to support cancer recovery through recreation and honor the memory of founder Todd McGovern. In fact, team organizer and Tatnall School teacher Lindsay McConnel was the third place female finisher. Congrats to Lindsay, her team and all the girls (and boys!), parents and friends who came out for the race!
