Gerry Fahey - 2000th Race
May 13, 2017 was a special day for Gerry Fahey - He ran his 2000th Race for charity! A month later on June 13, 2017 at a large gathering of fellow runners and their families and friends at the Avenues of Viera, Gerry was honored with an Award from Running Zone Foundation Ballroom dancing friends of Gerry and Elizabeth, Tom and Margaret were among supporters present. This page is hosted as a tribute to Gerry for his lifetime achievement.
Elizabeth Hill was beaming proudly as she posed with Gerry holding his Award for his 2000th Run - It was all the more poignant and meaningful as Gerry had almost died last year and stunned everyone as the "Comeback Kid" of charity road racing.
