Reed Runners Raise Cash for Public Schools

More than six hundred dashing locomotorists took part in Reed’s annual 5K Fund Run, which raised more than $41,000 for Portland public schools. Undeterred by the gloomy sky, the runners set off from the Old Dorm Block, huffed and puffed their way up Woodstock Boulevard, recovered their breath on Cesar Chavez Avenue, and then raced back down Steele Street. All proceeds from the event went to local elementary schools Duniway, Grout, Lewis, Llewellyn, and Woodstock.

First across the finish line was Ethan Linck ’13, who posted the blazing time of 17:09. (The last time we wrote about Ethan, he set a record for circumnavigating Mount Rainier.) The race featured many other fleet-footed classmates, including BMB major Trevor Soucy ’18, art major Nathaniel Eiffert ’19, David Snower ’20, Joshua Lash ’18, Hayden Kinney ’17, and Marcus Hibbeln ’20.
