VANDALIA – On Saturday, Bec’s Bunch Remembrance 5k saw a successful day of fun, food, and racing in spite of the rainy weather. The 5k is put on in remembrance of Rebecca Pellfrey, and all those who have lost their lives to Breast Cancer. It is put on by family members of Rebecca Pellfrey, also known as her “bunch.”

“I’m really impressed with the turnout,” said Ryan Pellfrey. “This year we fought through a lot of adversity and bad weather in order to have a successful event.”

The event was indeed successful; 197 people registered to run or walk in the event. The morning kicked off with short kid’s races of 100 yards, and a quarter mile. After the kid’s races, all the runners congregated around the start line to let go of balloons in honor of lost loved ones.

Bec’s Bunch 5k has a positive, supportive, and fun atmosphere that draws in families, friends, and young adults to register and run to support the Rebecca Pellfrey Foundation.
