Thanks to everyone who came out to run, walk, racewalk, spectate, volunteer, pickpocket (just kidding about the pickpockets), whatever you did to contribute to another outstanding OK5k race in 2015.
Be sure to check out the Race Results for 2015 and all previous years and scroll down on that page to link to Overall Winners, Top Ten Lists, and All Finishers for years 2000-2015.
2016 promises more of the great competition, camaraderie, community, and cuisine (yes, those locally produced refreshments and a farmer's market too!) that you've come to expect over these 18 years.
Thanks again! See you on June 11.
The Ichabod Crane High School Art Club held its eighth annual Empty Bowls Supper on Tuesday, February 2 in the ICHS cafeteria. The public enjoyed a delicious simple meal and took home a ceramic bowl made by Ichabod Crane students. Admission by cash donation included a handmade bowl, soup, bread, and beverage. The bowl serves as a visible reminder that people go to bed hungry every night and all proceeds benefit the Valatie Ecumenical Food Pantry.
The ceramic bowls are created by members of the Art Club and students in Ceramics classes at ICHS. The OK5k Race annually donates funds from the race to the Art Club to purchase materials for making the bowls. In turn, the Art Club makes custom bowls that are given as awards at the OK5k Race, in addition to the bowls made for the Empty Bowls Supper.
Along with our major sponsor -- Kinderhook Bank -- dozens of local businesses, organizations, and individuals make the OK5k possible. Please visit our sponsor's page and support them when you're in the area.
