Fun was had by all at the 4th Annual Andrew 5K Fun Run featuring a Color Splash last Saturday at Hoover Ridge hosted by Wetsel Middle School. 58 runners participated, raising over $3200! Half of the funds raised at the fun run will go to the Culpeper Soapbox Derby in Andrew’s name and half will go to WMS class funds.
The fun run is in honor of one of our students, Andrew Windland. Andrew Michael Windland of Locust Dale, Virginia, passed away on Saturday, September 22, 2012 at age 13. He battled a rare form of cancer, desmoplastic small round cell tumors. Andrew was all about helping others. He touched many lives through his perseverance, strength and courage.
A huge thank you to the the Windland Family for all of their effort and time they have put into this year’s event.
