The 1st annual Peggy Lanier Memorial Run, held September 23, was a huge success. With 75 runners participating in a 5K, 1 Mile, and Biscuit Dash, the event included a pancake breakfast, silent auction, and delicious Nancy’s Italian Ice treats. Many of Peggy’s family and friends were on hand to support the event in loving memory of this avid runner and supporter of Macon East. Peggy’s son Vic Lanier, a MEA graduate, finished the 5K in 2nd place. The 4th grade class had the most number of student participants at the run, and were rewarded with a pizza party. A special thanks to MAC Sporting Goods for sponsoring this inaugural event and providing the t-shirts.
