Fr. Andy is once again leading the Annunciation runners in the IOCC Race to Respond in the Akron Marathon, Half-Marathon, and Relay on Saturday, Sep. 26. The first 10 runners who sign up to run the Half or Full with our team and commit to raising at least $500 for IOCC will receive a free bib (actual cost is $85-$95). If you are interested in the Relay, Fr. Andy is working on a donation of bibs for this event as well. Please contact Fr. Andy if you would like to join Team Annunciation in the Race to Respond! or for more information call Barney Powers at 330.760.2364. Please click here to donate: www.crowdrise.com/teamioccakron.
