Running for Eve

On Saturday, a fundraiser was held at the Lapham Peak Summer Stage to help
 purchase a handicapped-accessible van for Eve Karcher, a nine-year old girl
 with cerebral palsy.  Eight Lapham Peak Trail Runners showed up before the
 afternoon concert to run a loop or two and raise some additional money for 
Eve and her family.

  Representing the LPTR were Brad Birkholz, Christine Crawford, Dave Dehart,
Chris Derosier, Jeff Mallach, Cassie Scallon, Craig Swartwout, Robert Wehner 
and Chrissy Wittleder.

  From those running -- and those who contributed but couldn't be there
(Julie, Brian, Todd, Angela, Kevin and Steve Gross) -- we raised $200.

  The fundraiser was organized by Jennifer King, a Kettle Moraine high school 
student, who publicly thanked the "runners" for their help.  Unofficially,
 the event raised about $4,500.

Thanks to everyone and especially Christine who helped "herd the cats" and 
to Brad for bringing this event to our attention.
