Tuesday evening, the City of Kannapolis and Carolinas Healthcare System honored the 2016 Run Kannapolis participants during a special ceremony.

This year 35 people completed all eight of the 5K walks/runs easily doubling the number of 15 people who completed all seven Run Kannapolis events in 2016.

Congratulations to Linda Bohrer, Corey Clawson, Chad Drake, Keith Eagle, Bryan Edwards, Gabe Edwards, Sarah Edwards, Brandon Farabee, Tucker Farabee, Ian Fongemy, Wayne Hall, Abby Hamlin, Jenny Hamlin, Scott Hamlin, Christy Honeycutt, Jadyn Jackson, Kahlen Kuddie, Kearsten Kuddie, Randy Mann, Matt March, Connor Mikoski, Michelle Mikoski, Troy Mikoski, Kollin Petty, Angie Richardson, Brianne Rucker, Bob Scott, Sandi Scott, Terri Shaffer, Chelia Spencer, Crystal Turney, Marie Wagner, Candy Waller, Ken Webb, who completed all eight 5Ks.

“It is amazing to double the number of participants who completed all of the runs in one year. We enjoy hearing the stories of people who went from being on the sofa, to walking, to now running. To hear stories of losing weight, feeling better, and having less medical issues – all because they are participating in Run Kannapolis is wonderful,” said Kannapolis Mayor Darrell Hinnant. “We can’t wait to double or triple the numbers next year and to hear more success stories.”

Kannapolis launched Run Kannapolis as part of the City’s Discover a Healthy Life brand. Ninety-two people completed at least five events qualifying them to receive commemorative Run Kannapolis medals and prizes during the ceremony. A total of 1,230 people ran at least one of the races.
