Congrats to Country group DIAMOND RIO, which raised $90,000 for BIG BROTHERS BIG SISTERS with their TEAM RIO running team at the ST. JUDE COUNTRY MUSIC MARATHON AND HALF MARATHON on SATURDAY (4/28) in NASHVILLE. Band member JIMMY OLANDER ran his first full marathon and band member GENE JOHNSON ran his first half-marathon. TEAM RIO 2012 had over 100 adult runners and 60 TEAM RIO KIDS participants from several local schools.
New this year, TEAM RIO added a spinning component to the fitness and fundraising efforts at the official TEAM RIO cheer station, FIT in THE GULCH. Situated at the mile-two marker, spinners participated by spinning 13.1 miles.
