“Run for Rosie” attracts 425 runners

By Bob Evans

Run for Rosie
Kerri Curry of New Philadelphia was the top female placer with a time of 20:20.99.

They came - the young, the old, and in all shapes and sizes - for a cause.

The third annual Run for Rosie 5K run/walk was held last Saturday morning at the Carroll County Fairgrounds.

Also, for the first time, the event was part of the Subway Challenge Series.

The race is run annually as part of the Carroll County Relay for Life in honor of Roselyn Derby, who passed away in 2010 of cancer.

The race continues to grow each year, with 425 registered runners this year ranging in ages from 4 to 71, up from 256 runners last year.

This year’s race raised more than $15,000 for Relay for Life.

“I am just amazed,” said race organizer Tonya Howell. “I would like to thank everyone who came out today and all the people who have helped put this together. It is all for a good cause.”

For most people it wasn’t about winning or losing or who had the fastest time. It was running (or walking) for the fight against cancer.

They ran as individuals, families and teams.

The Carrollton High School football, soccer and cross country teams each took part in the race.

“It is not always about winning or losing, its about your community,” said Carrollton Head Football Coach Eric McCort. “We had around 40 players come out today and run for their community.”

For others it was a way to bond.

“I came out to support Relay for Life and to run with my son,” said Janet Lane of East Township, who was running with her 10-year old son Troy. “This was his first race and I want to help and support him.”

Steve Slates of Sherrodsville was the overall men’s winner with a time of 18:13.53, while Kerri Curry of New Philadelphia was the overall female winner with a time of 20:20.99.
