"Team Goodwill Sets New Records at the 2012 Hope and Possibility Race!"


Saturday, May 5th marked the date for the 2012 Hope & Possibility Race; a special feature of the annual Flying Pig Marathon; and also the participation of the largest “Team Goodwill” ever! Made up of more than 35 team members, this year’s Goodwill participants celebrated record-breaking performances by a number of team members. Craig Franta and Darlene O’Hair from Work Adjustment finished in just under 59 minutes and Retail team members finished in 28 minutes. This year’s perfect blue-sky weather morning served to inspire the Goodwill team who joined with thousands of other athletes to show off the results of their Spring training efforts. The Hope & Possibility Race is now in its 6th year and is designed to partner athletes with and without disabilities in a community-wide, high-profile showcase. The 2012 version of “Team Goodwill” was composed of representatives from the organization’s Work Adjustment, CARE, Recreation-Leisure, Job Coaching and Retail teams. “The annual Hope & Possibility  Race is really a wonderful opportunity to be part of a major community event in Greater Cincinnati,” said Sharon Hannon, Marketing Specialist. “We look forward to the Race every year and are thrilled by the achievements of our athletes,” added Hannon. Ohio Valley Goodwill congratulates all members of the 2012 version of   “Team Goodwill” on their record-breaking performances and good spirit! Goodwill also  supported long-time partner Hamilton County Developmental Disabilities Services on Sunday, May 6th during the running of the Flying Pig Marathon at their volunteer water station at Mile 25. “It was amazing to  see all of these determined runners finish the 26.2 mile course in such great shape,” said Hannon, Goodwill volunteer.
