Sibling winners of the 6th- through 8th-grade division of the inaugural Toddy Thomas Pumpkin Run relax with their certificates after the Rohner Park located event. 13-year-old eighth-grader Jacoby Creek student RJ Richard ran his way to first place in the boys division while his sixth grade, 11-year-old sister Lily Richard brought home first in the girls division. RJ earned a strong lead that carried him through an amazing extra mistaken extended loop where he still fought his way to keep his lead. Lily shared, “It was a good event and I will probably come back next year and do it again.”
