Ms. Diana Durr, Executive Director, VCB, updated Council on the upcoming marathon.Ms. Durr
explained we have 160 runners, our goal is 500, and we haven't started with Miami yet, so there is a good possibility of having the full 500.Ms. Durr
noted the marathon has been certified, which is a very important element for runners because some do not want to participate in a marathon unless it is certified.Ms. Durr
noted the volunteers are meeting weekly and have been very active in getting everything done that they have to do before the marathon starts.Ms. Durr
acknowledged Mr. Steve Beckman and Mr. Denis Mullally noting without these two individuals, we would not be having the marathon as well as the committee because they have been working so hard.
