The annual 24 hour Olander race for the benefit of Expressive Therapies Center was held this past Sunday, September 3rd. It was held at the 1.091 mile trail around Sylvania park. The race started at 10 a.m. with 162 participants who raced. Participants could have been either a single participant or a team of 4-10 participants. At the race they also had other activities set up for other people who wanted to support the cause. There was also camping available along with meals, snacks, volleyball games, a kids playground, and access to the lake.

The race would end at 10 a.m. that Monday morning. What the Expressive Therapies Center does is help those who are struggling with post-traumatic stress disorder. Josephine Weeden was the single participant leader running 117.4 miles.  The race was a huge success. If you want to help you can sign up for the race next year and benefit those who need help.
