The 4th Annual Pottstown Half Marathon is History
Thank you to all of the runners, volunteers, police, medical and fire department personnel, sponsors, donors, residents and spectators.
What beautiful weather to have everyone come together to create a memorable day. We look forward to seeing everyone next year.
SFTC member Dave Derosa passed away on July 4th after running a race. He was 45 and leaves behind a wife and three children. Dave succumbed while doing what he loved – running and inspiring his family to follow a healthy lifestyle.
Dave took up running eight years ago as part of a science fair project at the school where he was a 5th grade teacher. Since then, he has competed in races of all distances up to the half marathon with plans to complete a marathon this year. A longer term goal was to run in all 50 states and parts of Europe.
Please keep his wife, Wendy, and children in your thoughts.
