Greater Corvallis Rotary raised money for equipment for Alsea School as part of their volunteer efforts at the Corvallis Half Marathon, held Sunday, April 15 in Corvallis. More than 2000 runners and another 300 volunteers helped make this year’s race a smashing success.
Fourteen Greater Corvallis Rotarians served Tomato and Chicken Bisque soups, fresh fruit and Great Harvest Bread to runners as they finished the race. “The reviews are in and those who ran said it was the best organized race ever,” said volunteer Ron Thiesen who was one of the volunteer crew organizers from Greater Corvallis Rotary.
Appreciation is extended to Rotarians Steve Sullivan, Rick Schroff, Frank Heresco, Jim and Janet Swinyard, Ken Roblee, Ron Marek and granddaughter, Joseph Baily, Susie and Ali Cook, Jen Costa, Karen Emery, Ron Thiesen, Doug Oxsen, Les Boudreaux and Beth Ray for their efforts.
