Recapturing Glory at the 2008 Need for Speed Relay

The Hellgate squad is back to defend their title as champions of the Need for Speed Relay this year on June 8, 2008. Amazingly enough the same members are all fit to run again and this time we are asking for your help in two possible ways.

The relay is 53 miles long with the start at Bear Mountain and the conclusion in New Rochelle. The course is a mix of distance, road, and trail. Our co-ed relay team would love to invite everyone to come out and cheer us along the way or on to the finish. Last year our determined anchor leg, Kevin Starkes, overcame a ~3 minute deficit to pass 2 all male teams for an exciting and close victory!

The second way you can aid the team is by helping us raise funds for children who experience domestic violence. This year our team has put more emphasis on helping this worthy cause. We had the privilege last year to hear from a number of children who have benefitted from the programs this organization runs. This is a special group. Please follow the link below for more information and if you are able to donate to help us surpass our fundraising goal:

Thank you all for your support and we hope to see some of you on June 8th!

P.S. There is another relay in Long Island during the summer that we have not had a team for in years, if ever. Anyone interested in getting a team or 2 together for a later summer relay?

I'm going to try to get the family up there to cheer you on. Sounds terrific, I'm very envious :)

Yvonne! That will be great! Look for Ashley and Aidan near the finish line too! Hope to see you after!
