Help Support CHS Athletics With ‘Teal Ribbon Run’
On Sept. 13, the Columbia High School family and Columbia High School Athletics community is coming together for the 14th Annual "Teal Ribbon Run."
The "Run," which goes through Washington Park in Albany, is looking to raise money and awareness for Ovarian Cancer.
It only costs $15 to participate if you sign up before Aug. 31. But you can still sign up all the way up until the race for this great cause.
We spoke to Columbia Athletic Director Mike Leonard today about the event, how to get involved, and we also learned one of the best parts of the story:
For every participant that beats Leonard in the 5K race, he will donate $1 to the cause. Last year the event raised more than $2600.
This event has a personal tie to Leonard, who lost his Mother-in-Law in 2014 to Ovarian Cancer.
While this is the 14th edition of the "Run," it is the second year that CHS is directly involved.
