Three Montgomery County Sheriff officials participate in St. Jude Half Marathon

 

Montgomery County Sheriff's Office - MCSOMontgomery County, TN – Investigator Jeffrey Morlock, Deputy Stephanie Price and Lt. Sonny Goodowens completed the 2014 St. Jude Half Marathon in Memphis, TN last weekend raising over $7,900 for the charity.

“Over 18,000 runners raised more than $6 million for the St. Jude Children’s hospital at this event,” Morlock said, adding that the hospital never charges families for services – it relies solely on donations to operate. “It costs about $2 million per day to run the hospital.”

This was Morlock’s second time raising money for St. Jude, as last year’s race was cancelled due to icy weather.

He plans on running in the St. Jude Full Marathon in 2015 in Chicago, IL.

This was Price’s first half marathon, and due to her work schedule, she couldn’t train as much as she wanted. Her longest run before the race was a little over 6 miles. The Half Marathon is 13.1 miles.

A view of all the runners lining up for the race.“It was an amazing experience, especially running through St. Jude campus and seeing all the kids and their families cheer us on,” Morlock said. “They are the real heroes in this.”

We would like to thank all of our friends and family who supported us in our fundraising efforts, the Clarksville Running Club, the Middle Tennessee Trail Runners and The Runners Hub for their encouragement as well,” Morlock said.
