The Friends of The Light House is once again hosting their annual Annapolis Run for The Light House at Quiet Waters Park on September, 24th, 2017. This year one of the participants is John Bretzke, who has been running a half marathon in every state, and has chosen the Annapolis Run for The Light House in Maryland, to be his 50th state! John began this amazing goal ten years ago as a New Year’s resolution.
“When I turned 50, I realized that I was going to have to stop eating what I like or start exercising more. The “not eating” side of that equation was a non-starter for me, so I started running! I have enjoyed every race in every state each for different reasons. In each state, my wife and I have enjoyed learning about the local culture, eating the local foods and drinking the local beer. I’ve run with friends and family in some races and we’ve met some wonderful people along the way. I’m delighted to end this goal on a race for a great cause: The Annapolis Light House!”
The Annapolis Run for The Light House is held every fall with proceeds benefiting The Light House Homeless Prevention Support Center. Last year’s 2016 event had a total of 379 participants who came out for the Half Marathon, 5K Jogging Joe Shafran Memorial Run, and 1.25 Mile Donut Dash/Walk.
