Jazz Half Marathon and 5K

What a great morning downtown on Saturday. ‘Team 6’ participated in the Third Annual Jazz Half Marathon 7 5K benefiting the Cancer Program at Children’s Hospital. ‘Team 6’ was comprised of 44 WDSU employees, including our general manager, Joel Vilmenay, who spearheaded the effort. All of us competed in the 5K, with the exception of reporter Heath Allen who ran the half. Showoff.

WDSU also broadcast the event, pre-and post race, from 6-10 a.m. Approximately 2,500 runners participated this year.

WDSU is very involved with Children’s Hospital and the race is a great opportunity to raise a lot of money. Last year we helped raise nearly $150,000 for Children’s. This year’s total should eclipse that number.

I finished the 5K with a personal best, which didn’t take much. I placed 39th among men with a time of 28:34:6.
