MASON, DAVID ARE BREAST CANCER RUN WINNERS

Oct. 21 – More than 140 men, women and children — including infants in strollers pushed by parents — set off at a brisk pace running and walking in the 4th annual "Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk, Run, Roll" Sunday afternoon. The event was hosted by the St. Thomas Association of Roadrunners.
The two-mile course started in the Port of $ale parking lot and looped around the Havensight Mall and dock area.
Naheem Mason, an 18-year-old graduate of Ivanna Eudora Kean High School, was the top male finisher with a time of 11 minutes 56 seconds. Ruth Ann David was the top female finisher, in 12 minutes and 13 seconds.
"The whole key was pacing myself," Mason said. "Plus, I really wanted to win it this year. I love competition."
"We started this race four years ago as a way to highlight breast cancer since October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month," event organizer Theresa Hodge said.
Ms. Senior Virgin Islands, Carol Tuohy, participated in the event and helped hand out awards. She explained that the occasion had special significance for her:
"Last year, I did this event, walked it, and earned this medal," she said, displaying her keepsake. "I kept the medal on until the next Tuesday, when I was wheeled into surgery for a lumpectomy. Today, I'm proud to be back and be a survivor."
