Run for Aidan 2013

Kristin Metcalf
The Run for Aidan story began with the dearly-loved coaching that Mitch and Mindy Leffler (Aidan’s parents) provided to Newport High School’s sizeable cross country and track programs from 1994 to 2006. At the news of Aidan’s diagnosis of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy at age three, a group of dedicated NHS XC moms spearheaded the inaugural 5k run for Aidan on the NHS home cross country course. Now in its eighth year, the purpose of the event remains to benefit Aidan’s medical care fund and to support the awesome Leffler family.
