It is with joyful heart, but a tear in my eye, that I pass on this precious jewel of an event to Molly Craft and Christian McMurray. I remember Molly asking me about the Run when Linus was in 1st grade: I knew then to keep an eye on her! Plus, she’s an event coordinator, you couldn’t be in better hands. Then we have Christian who is going to be around Rooftop for the next 10 years (at least). PLUS he helped me every single year as my man on the field, as the Captain of the Arm Markers … Mr. Verification is now Mr. Co-Coordinator!
I am so confident in this team and I know the school will back them up with your Rooftop Spirit as well. Over the past 8 years, Rooftop made more than 500,000 dollars for our school. That’s quite a lot of money, and I am so proud of all of you who helped and gave and came out in the sun and the rain and cooked, registered kids, brought tables and ran or walked for our kids’ education!
I feel so wonderful knowing I am turning the Run over to Molly and Christian. Let’s task Rooftop with helping them to pull in even more funds. I have always felt that, with some tweaks here and changes there, this event could be better sponsored and could easily make 100K a year for our school. So, as I go , I wish this upon them: greater sponsorship, greater attendance, greater goals, and a greater monetary turn-out! Rooftop has the Spirit! I SAY ‘ROOFTOP’ – YOU SAY ‘SPIRIT’ – ‘ROOFTOP SPIRIT, ROOFTOP SPIRIT!’
