On October 13, 2012, Special Olympics PA – Lycoming County’s LDR/LDW group participated in the Second Annual Round the Hills 2.5K/5K Run-Walk held at Williamsport Area High School in Williamsport, PA. Everyone who participated did extremely well and had a great time. The race results are as follows:

Ms. Wirth is the number one female runner on the Williamsport Area High School Cross Country Team. She won the female division last year and wanted to help the LDR/LDW group this year. Ms. Wirth ran the race with athlete Kelly Horn and helped her complete the event two minutes faster than last year.
A special thank you is extended to Ms. With and congratulations to all the athletes. Great Job!
