2011 Shamrock Run Directors Report

What a terrific day, over 600 runners and walkers, a new record for the Shamrock Run! Congratulations to everyone for a great effort, especially to our overall winners Scott Assenmacher 16:09 5K & 34:34 10K, Anna McBride 19:19 5K and Keelin Schneider 39:14 10K.

Just before the awards ceremony, I was honored to present a check in the amount of $1,000 to the Hospice & Palliative Care of Davie County, our designated charity for 2011. The Hospice is such a wonderful and caring organization that supports the Davie County Community in time of need. It was a pleasure working with Ann, April and all the staff from the Hospice this year.

Special recognition goes out to Gerald Wilkie from Best Buy, who amassed a team of more than 50 employees in our 1st Annual Corporate Challenge event.  Special recognition also goes to Girls on the Run, with more than 35 girls participating! Harry Hill, Senior Vice-President with Bank of the Carolinas, presented $50 Savings Bonds to the top three Girls on the Run Finishers: Lylah Swan 30:23, Sarah Henderson 30:35 and Maddie Bell 32:43.Thank you, Bank of the Carolinas, for your support of the Girls on the Run!

Our sincere appreciation and gratitude is extended to all our sponsors in the business community.  Without your leadership and commitment to community, the Shamrock Run would not be possible. And talking about the business community, I would like to especially thank Carolyn McManamy and the Davie County Chamber of Commerce for all their support and guidance.

We would also like to thank the Davie County "Y" and their skilled support staff for providing Child Care so parents could participate in the Shamrock Run!!

Last, but not least, I wish to thank all our volunteers and support staff that help make this event a tremendous success, not only for St. Francis, but all of Davie County.

Hoping to see you all next year at the 24th Annual Shamrock Run,

Paul Nice
Race Director
