Ron's Run for the Roses

The idea of making "Ron's Run" an annual fund raising event came about during a wonderful gathering of Ron's extended family at the beach on Kentucky Derby day 2008. Enveloped in the heavenly scent of barbecue brisket, we donned any crazy hat we could find and placed our bets. It was not unusual for our family to celebrate race day, as my parents loved everything about horse racing, especially the Triple Crown. And Ron, being Ron, loved to create special moments. Kate Allison, the lucky winner that day, proceeded to donate her earnings to the National Pancreas Foundation in memory of Ron, and we were off!
