17th annual Tim Kennard River Run returns, participants flood the streets for a good cause
SALISBURY, Md. – The 17th annual Tim Kennard River run returned to Salisbury Sunday morning bringing almost 400 participants to lace up their sneakers, headed to Salisbury Bible Fellowship, hit the pavement, and it was all for a good cause.
The run initially began in honor of Tim Kennard who passed away back in 2004 of Kidney cancer. Kennard wanted to help support children and animals, so the run was created to continue that mission.
This year, the race benefited TEAM 360, Coalition of Caring, and the Eastern Shore Running Club Scholarship Fund. Race organizers tell us, the support for runners throughout the community was the highlight of the day. “It’s always motivating and inspiring to see the teams of runners out there you know cheering them on along the course and they get to finish and cross the finish line and that’s an exciting moment too,” says Vanessa Junkin, a member of the Tim Kennard River Run organization. She adds, “It’s really nice to be back and just see everything come together after months of planning a lot of people come together to make this race happen.”

The Tim Kennard River Run organization says they plan to return next year.
