Dubbed the “Freedom 5K,” Sunday’s race to benefit Youth Overcoming Obstacles had a fantastic turnout for an inaugural run that was dealt a chilly blow (39˚) by Mother Nature. With 130 runners and volunteers, 30 more who registered, and a handful of sponsors, the Riverfront 5K was a great vehicle to involve students and families in the fundraising effort to help give a second chance to Delaware teens who have been incarcerated. Spearheaded by Patrick Lyons, who is a Senior at Salesianum Senior, and Jane Lyons, Freshman at Ursuline, the Youth Overcoming Obstacles initiative helps raise funds to support newly-released teens with the re-entry process, with the ultimate goal of reducing recidivism. Large groups from Ursuline and Sallies turned out to run, volunteer, and cheer on their friends today.

Top three men: Jorge Morales (19:13:5), Stephen Toomey (19:47:8) and Luis Maisonet (20:12:4). Top three women: Renee Baffone (24:31:3), Melissa Rice (24:35:0), Kristi Barnett (25:15:7). Complete results here. Congratulations to all!
