Dear wonderful latke loving friends,

Many of you came out this morning and really gave it the 'ol college try'. You are amazing! There wasn't a flake yet down when we arrived and the minute the snow started in earnest, we communicated closely with Henrico County Police. When Lt. Heinig made the call that the roads were too dangerous to hold the race, we officially cancelled. Your safety and that of your children is of supreme importance to us.

Those of you who did come out this morning were so very supportive and understanding and we all ended up enjoying a wonderful, warm latke party together! You all offered kind words, encouragement, support, and smiles. That means so much to us.

**** And the big question: what happens now? Will this race be rescheduled? We are having a big planning meeting with all our community agencies (it takes a village, folks) within the next few weeks, and we will have that answer for you as soon as possible. We will publicize this answer and all the details through this runsignup email, the runsignup site, and our Fb page. Thank you for your patience as we figure out our next step. You all are amazing! ******

Humbly yours,
The Run-A-Latke team


******update - Race unfortunately has been cancelled by Henrico Police ************
