36th Mike Berry Run Honors Injured Philly SWAT Team Member
During Labor Day weekend 16 Cheltenham Cross Country alumni assembled at Curtis Park to participate in the 36th Mike Berry Run and pay tribute to CHS alumnus Jaison Potts ‘87, who was in attendance and is recovering from head injury suffered when he was shot serving a warrant in August.
Runners included Adam Rosenberg ‘70, Jon Peller ‘74, Martin Keibert ‘70, Vince Durning ‘76, John Marble’ 76, Aram Aghazarian ‘87, Mike Gross ‘84 and his son Aaron, Tim Voit ‘87, Mark Gyandoh ‘92, Adam Alper ’00, James Rodgers ‘08, Chris Coleman ‘09, Chuck Papacostas ‘09, Dylan Welch ‘12, Matti Hollo ‘13, and Larry Hall ‘18.
“To think former athletes fly in from as far away as California and drive up from Washington for the race and immediately drive home after the race is amazing,” said event organizer and former Cross Country Coach Tom Sexton “We raised eleven hundred dollars today. Our generous alumni just keep on giving. After the race, we had lots of social time back at school. Our cross country tradition is alive and well. Thanks to Coaches Russ Wolff and Rob Wilman for all the work they do and for wanting our program to continue. ”
The next cross country event is the team banquet on Sunday, Nov. 11.
