Coach Gunn has traditionally read this inspirational
message at each race just before the starting bell:


"Although the course set before you is tough and full of challenge, life can be much tougher.

Today's race celebrates the life and memory of Steve Briegel. Many runners and walkers entered in today's event didn't know Steve. However, I am sure that every participant has known someone who possessed the same courage, determination and love of live that Steve did.

Prior to the start of today's race, there will be a few moments of silence to reflect on the beauty of these people. Then a bell will sound. Run and walk your race to win!

All cancer survivors are wearing special shirts. We salute these special survivors!"
