Maryland Branch supported marathon runners

Maryland Branch supported marathon runners

Last November, the Maryland Branch braved 30-degree weather to serve 1,500 cups of water to thirsty runners in Annapolis’s Half-Marathon and 10K race at one of three water-stations along the route. About a third of the 4,000 entrants slowed down long enough to grab a cup or two. The OGT Maryland Branch workers served more than just water: their cheers and encouraging words put a smile on more than one tired face. Pictures are of the Maryland Branch serving water to the marathon runners.
