Tully (WSYR-TV) -- Local Olympian Lopez Lomong, of Tully, will be back in his hometown on Friday, and you’ll have the chance to run alongside him for as long as you can keep up.
Beginning at 6 p.m., Lomong is hosting a Fun Run at Tully High School. It’s a fundraiser to help save the Tully Indoor Track Program, which was scrapped from the school district’s budget this year.
Additional events to support the Indoor Track Program include:
- Tully Community Days Parade – featuring Lomong as the Grand Marshall – Saturday, at 10 a.m.
- Post-parade festivities, to include a Lopez Lomong book & T-shirt signing, will take place at Tully Library, beginning at 10:30 a.m.
Registration will be held at 4:30 p.m. on Friday in the Tully High School parking lot. Participants will be asked to donate $10 toward the indoor track team.
More than 1,000 people are expected to attend each event.
