HURT Runner, Vi Jones-Medusky – Raising Awareness for ALS

Many thanks to all of you who participated in Vi’s annual Trek at Kualoa!

All the usual old HURT course marshals manned the course (Bill & Punkin’ Burgess, Christine Begy, Steve Villiger, Clem Alec-Gorai, MikeM, Cheryl Loomis, Keith Moon’s lovely daughter Morgan, Rex Vlcek, Sean Price), dressed in costume!

We had about 120 runners on the course too, and a few cows, in perfect weather conditions. Vi sat at the finish line to greet all the finishers, while being serenaded by two talented guitarists- we all sang along with them.

Thanks also to HURT members sending in a donation- the proceeds will go to the families of ALS victims, to help offset their enormous expenses.

All in all, a beautiful day- everyone was glad to see Vi, in a rare excursion from her home. Vi’s husband, Jan, Vi’s kids, brothers and sisters, nieces and nephews, and Vi’s 104 year old father also attended!

Check out the beautiful photos, kindly submitted by one of the participants, Krista Jaspers, a close Jones family friend. These are a nice remembrance of the event. 

Thank you all…PJ and John
