PT Students Active in Kansas City Marathon

Rockhurst PT was well represented at the Kansas City Marathon on October 16, 2010 with 1st and 2nd year students participating as both runners and race volunteers.

First year student Kim Shank-Reed (PT '13) finished the full marathon in a time of 3:01.41. This was good for 3rd place overall in the womens division - all ages. Way to go Kim!

Several students completed the half-marathon: 2nd year Kara Poehlman (2:04.55), 1st year Kate Ruble (2:05.36) and 1st year Leslie Taylor (2:29.25).

Many students volunteered their help in various capacities throughout the race, including 2nd year students Chelsie Harper, Heather Robertson, Jessica Karlson, Katie Tallman, Megan Rives, Tyler Clark, and Tyler Stutz.

Congratulations to all of these students for a job well done!!
