Five athletes ran and biked the entire 76-mile length of the Greenbrier River Trail on June 21 to raise funds for Payton House Hospice in Lewisburg. Donors pledged as much as $3 per mile and the Robert C. Byrd Clinic contributed an additional $500, raising a total amount of $4,104. The group started the 18-hour trek at Cass at 5 a.m. and arrived at Caldwell at 11 p.m. Completing the trip were Jim Moore, Heather Ratliff, and Tom Greenstreet, all of Lewisburg; Rick Moore, of Parkersburg, and James Towey, of Richmond, Virginia. Providing support were Monica Moore and Jennifer Cornelius, of Lewisburg. Pictured crossing Knapps Creek, left to right: Jim Moore, Monica Moore, Towey and Greenstreet. Photo courtesy Monica Moore.
