Congratulations to Laramie Riggs for finishing the race! She and her friend Amanda Newman, who raced with her, are Alumni Association Scholars. Laramie is our inspiration. She was traveling in Ecuador this summer when a bus she was riding in crashed. Laramie was seriously injured and has overcome many physical challenges. Her spirits remain high. Way to go, Laramie!

Thanks to you all for making our race such a success!
