Sandy charity

run brings in

more than $1,700

PLATTSBURGH — The Raise the Base charity fun run held Nov. 9 raised more than $1,700 for Hurricane Sandy relief.

The event was held on the U.S. Oval in the evening, with about 120 participants with flashlights and headlamps running or walking around the Oval. They either walked one lap for 1 mile or ran three laps for 3 miles.

Donations were collected from the runners to raise the funds for hurricane victims. The city had suggested $20 donations, but many runners and walkers gave more than that.

“We did pretty good for organizing this in only about four days,” City Recreation Director Steve Peters said.

The money raised was sent to the American Red Cross Hurricane Sandy Relief Effort.
