MILWAUKEE – Over 230 participants enjoyed ideal weather conditions at the 6th Annual Gary's Gallop on Saturday, April 18. Gary's Gallop is a tribute to the late Wisconsin Lutheran College president, Dr. Gary Greenfield. It is a scenic 5k course through the WLC Outdoor Athletic Complex and Underwood Parkway, which attracted runners and walkers from age 7 through 76.
Congratulations to Dana Schulz of Germantown who led the 5k with a time of 16:46 and top female runner Jean Lyons of Hartland who finished in 19:21.
A family event, many participants also brought their young children to participate in the Kids’ Race which was one lap around the Raabe Stadium track. Current WLC President Dr. Daniel Johnson awarded the kids with their ribbons at the finish line.
Gary's Gallop serves as a fundraiser for Warriors Athletics through proceeds from entry fees and the support of sponsors.
