OH!! WHAT A RIDE!!! with Lauren in the Brookhaven 5k
The Landrunners' recently had the opportunity to run the Brookhaven 5K with a very special young lady. Lauren Smith, who some may recognize as Little Miss Wheelchair of Oklahoma, completed the Brookhaven 5K as part of the Landrunners OH!! WHAT A RIDE!!! Program with the assistance of Chuck Mikkelson. After the race, Lauren described the experience. “It was very fun! It meant a lot to me to be able to participate in the Brookhaven 5K. I normally can’t do anything like that, even on the playground I feel sad because I can’t run and play like the other kids. The 5K was very exciting to do and meant even more to me that I was able to do it with my dad!” (her dad, Mike, was able to push her across the finish line, which was just amazing!) Lauren had the biggest smile on her face and was giving a thumbs up as they finished the race. (Pictured: Mike, Lauren, and Chuck) If you would like more information on the program or know a potential candidate, contact Jim Roblyer.
