The atmosphere was exciting and the weather beautiful and sunny as the temperatures reached into the 50s by start time. We raised the awareness levels of hunger both locally and worldwide, as we raised $30,000 that will go to our charities: Lexington’s Interfaith Community Services (LICS), Souper Bowl of Caring, World Vision, Oliver Gospel Missions, and Area Churches Together Serving (ACTS). Exact donation figures will be available in about one week. This will bring our eleven year total donations to over $238,859.16

Thanks to the 1134 participants, approximately 90 law enforcement officers, over 70 volunteers, and all our wonderful sponsors, especially Blue Cross Blue Shield who accounts for approximately half the generated income as they honor the memory of Curt Owens Jr.
