Andrew Schneider, executive director of Arlington Thrive, did not come in last on Sunday, April 23. After months of training for the race along with other “Resolve to Run” participants, Schneider turned in a time of 2 hours 16 minutes and 35 seconds. Best of all, he and his fellow runners raised over $13,000 for Thrive by running. That is still $7,000 short of the goal of $20,000, but runners are confident their supporters will continue to send in money up to the deadline for contributions, on May 1. Supporters can send checks to show runners their miles mattered to: Arlington Thrive, at PO Box 7429, Arlington, VA 22207, or online, see: http://arlingtonthrive.org/donate/
