The 2023 Do the Right Thing Awardees are Eleanor Olsen (pictured above left) for Bethesda and Melina Shelton (pictured right) for Chapel Hill.
Eleanor finished her race and while cheering on the sidelines, saw her brother Henry struggling to finish the run. Eleanor jumped in, grabbed his hand and ran with him the last half mile. “It was so sweet, they were holding hands as they crossed the finish line and we were so proud of both of them.” Melina was a superstar during race weekend. She earned STAR Supporter status raising over $2,000 and volunteered to help during packet pick up on Saturday. Several volunteers witnessed her encouraging and supporting her fellow racers on race day. Eleanor and Melina demonstrate the values of JUST TRYAN IT and we are so grateful to have on our team.
