Cornwall MS run raises over $37K

CORNWALL – The 15th anniversary of the Cornwall Run to endMS has brought in more than $37,000.

That preliminary figure from Cornwall MS Society office manager Karen Torrie-Racine.

Over 400 runners enjoyed a cool, sunny day on the course along Cornwall’s waterfront trail.

It was also the first time for the marathon distance from Chrysler Marina, which was a Boston Marathon qualifying event.

Rob Lapensee of St. Catharines, Ont. won the marathon with a time of 2:45:31.

There were also five kilometer, ten kilometer and half marathon distances.

The Cornwall MS Society will use the money for mobility aids and home care, among other services.
