Grandma does 5K

To the Editor:

I have now done over a dozen 5K walks for charities in McHenry County.

I am most proud of the fact that our grandma is doing them with her kids and grandkids. She will be turning 85 this year.

I have tried to get the organizations to change the age breakdown of 70 and over to add another of 80 and over. It is quite an accomplishment to do a 5K at 85. At a recent 5K, she came in second. The walker that came in first was 71. I don’t mean to take anything away from them, but there was no one over 80 besides our Gram.

Hope we can make this happen. Kudos to our Gram.
