The Second Annual Steve Ruddy Memorial Run.
This is Steve's Last Run, modified slightly, but similar mileage and location! Steve's birthday was March 7, so the run is Saturday, March 8. We'll have two trails, one is the actual last run, no checks or false trails etc. and the other will be a typical hash trail. Walkers welcome as always of course!
Last year we raised several thousand dollars that were donated to the Steve Ruddy Scholarship Fund at Golden Gate University. I keep in touch with one of the recipients from the scholarship last year, and it gave her just what she needed to push through. She's a mom (a requirement of the scholarship recipients - they have to try to juggle being parents and students) and has been trying to finish school for decades. She's working full time, has her own business and is going to school full time! She'll be graduating in May and I can't want to see her commencement (she invited me!). She's so grateful to all of the people that have contributed to the fund and she thinks of Steve and his legacy often.
