Randi’s Race Raises More Than $36,000!

Race Results are in! View here

For 17 years, the Saturday of Mother’s Day weekend is filled with so much love and community support at Adams-Ricci Park in Enola, Pa. The weather was wacky – back and forth with sun, clouds, showers, sun, and repeat…but our supporters know that Randi’s Race is always held rain or shine! Year after year, our dozens of dedicated volunteers, including East Pennsboro Township, who ensures our annual fundraising 5K runs smoothly. Fire/EMS, Township police and others take their places and protect our runners and walkers.

Watch: Randi’s Race raises awareness for domestic violence in East Pennsboro Twp.

🏃‍♀️ Yesterday’s Randi’s Race brought in more than $36,000 in sponsorships and donations. Team Sue honors the memory of Sue Lyons Grundon, who lost her life in 2018 because of domestic violence. Team Sue raised more than $11,000, from community bake sale at the Lyons Dairy Farm in Perry County, a Good Friday food sale in Branchdale and their own merch (check out the hoodies!). With COVID-19 restrictions, fundraising can be difficult, but Sue’s sister Beth Karmazin and her growing circle of domestic violence ambassadors got creative in their efforts. What better way to honor Sue and keep her memory alive by helping others? The RHOA family is proud to have so many advocates who have the courage to turn the pain from tragedy of loss into providing comfort for others – our funds go directly to our programs, which are always free for children who have experienced domestic violence.


Randi’s Renegades – loyal Randi’s Race supporters who formed a team 12 years ago, led by Jennifer Bray and Karen East, raised nearly $900 this year! 💜 💜 💜
