OVM host ‘Better Tomorrows’ 5K

Over 200 runners and walkers gathered on Front Street in Ripley in the early morning hours of Aug. 8 to take part in the “Better Tomorrows” 5K Run and Walk, sponsored by the Ohio Valley Manor. The proceeds from the Run/Walk were donated to the Kennard/Barrios family who tragically lost three loved ones in flooding on July 18.

“We were overwhelmed by the support shown for the Kennard/Barrios family and are extremely proud to be part of such a caring and generous community,” said Erin Peters, Medical Records Director at the Ohio Valley Manor.

“There were 246 participants in all and the 5K raised over $8,000.”

In each category, the top three male and female runners and walkers were recognized with medals and the top male runner was Murphy Affolder, coming all the way from St.Louis, MO to participate in the event. Second place in the male runners category went to Ryan Seesholtz, with the third spot claimed by Alex Bertram.

For the female runners, Meghan Weller claimed first place, followed in second by Makayla Wallace and third place went to Heather Bertram.

In the Male Walkers Division, the top spot went to Mark Mussinan with second place going to his brother-in-law Tommy Germann. Third place went to Don Piatt.

For the Female Walkers, the top spot was claimed by Jena Schwierling, followed in second by Maria Williams and third by Deana Rosenthal.

Hundreds of runners filled the streets of Ripley early on the morning of Aug. 8 to take part in the “Better Tomorrows” 5K Run/Walk, sponsored by the Ohio Valley Manor.
