Tim Harmon Memorial 5K Run/Walk
Harmon left behind a legacy that’s helped countless people deal with and overcome the horrors of substance abuse. So each year, the Tim Harmon Memorial 5K Run/Walk is held in his honor at the county Government Center and raises money toward a cure for hepatitis C. Last year’s run was their most successful yet; they raised $18,000 for charity. The upcoming race, the 12th annual, is set for Saturday, June 25. http://www.connectionnewspapers.com/article.asp?article=352018&paper=88&cat=104
