Shamrock Shuffle 5K - Minnesota (2010)
Erin Egesdal, sister of Shauna Egesdal who is affected with EHK, is the Executive Director of Outdoor sports events, LLC (OSE). OSE, along with Paul Horan, co-owner of Gear Running Store in Edina, MN, and All Sport, sponsored a 5K race and a portion of the proceeds were donated to FIRST.
Coinciding with St. Patrick's Day, the Shamrock Shuffle 5K was held on Saturday, March 13, 2010 at Chanhassen High School in Chanhassen, MN.
More than 370 people came out on a cloudy, windy, 35 degree day to participate in the race. Author Terry Hitchcock was on hand as the honorary starter of the race, and also donated signed copies of his book "A Father's Odyssey: 75 Marathons in 75 Days" to each of the age-group winners.
FIRST appreciates the efforts of Erin and the event sponsors on our behalf.
