In Memory of Chris Volney (1950-2011)

This year's One-Mile Kids Race was held in memory of Chris Volney, a tireless volunteer and dedicated coach who started the Glencadia Bullets Track Club for youth and was an inspiration and ardent supporter of the OK5k and OK1Run. We miss him, but will never forget him. Click here for a photo of Chris with some of his Glencadia runners and a thank you note from his wife, Kate, for this year's race.
