Saturday, October 22 was a beautiful fall day with cool temperatures, clear blue skies and perfect for our 5K Run-Walk. Thanks to all who participated and helped support the Sea Turtle Care Center at the SC Aquarium. Our funds will help rehabilitate sick and injured sea turtles. A heartfelt thanks to our dedicated volunteers who participated in and helped out with the 3rd annual SCUTE Loop, especially: Susan Davis, Pat & George Orr, Carolyn Riley, Jim Heath, Debbie Martucci and Mark DuPuis.
We had about 110 participants and raised an impressive $7050 (so far)! Catherine O’Rourke from the SC Aquarium is very appreciative of our efforts and looks forward to receiving our gift which will be hand delivered on Tuesday. She brought 5 raffle items and bib numbers were drawn out of the bucket post race.
The winners were:
2 tickets for admission to the SC Aquarium – Louis Nicks
Plush sea turtle – Isabelle McCleod
Sea Turtle tumbler – Luke Kelso
SC Aquarium hat – Carolyn Riley
SC Aquarium tote bag – Marie Sartin
Many thanks to Debbie and Mark, our roving photographers, who took loads of photos to document our fundraising efforts. Enjoy viewing the best of their photos and another fabulous video from DuPuis Production Studios:
