Five Running Half Marathon For Scandia Village

Fundraising is going “really well” for five employees who are running the Door County Half Marathon on behalf of Scandia Village Good Samaritan in Sister Bay. Nicki Scharrig, Rich Demeuse, Michele Notz, Michelle Stoeckel and Joy Zakrzewski are working to raise $1,500 between them for the retirement home.

The weather was perfect for the 2009 Door County Half Marathon.

“We’re going to do an April Fools breakfast brunch with smoothies and breakfast bars, and each of us will take turns running on the treadmill for donations,” Scharrig said.

This will be each of the runner’s first Door County Half Marathon, though not their first race. Between them they’ve run the Nicolet Bay 5k, Bellin Run, Door County Triathlon and the Fall 50. They’ve earmarked their donation to purchase new drapes for the assisted living center, a new TV for the center’s exercise room, and aroma therapy units for the care center.
