March 25, 2015

PUNXSUTAWNEY — There is a saying that each one of us has a purpose here on this earth, and even though one local man may no longer be with us, his life is being remembered by those who were near and dear to him.

This year, Run or Walk celebrates its 36th event, but it won't just be an ordinary run or walk. It will be one held in memory of a very special man.
