Letter to the Editor, Sarah and Erik Rasmussen

Dear Editor,

It is with a heavy heart that I am writing to let the Killington, Pittsfield and Rutland communities know that our family will no longer be able to coordinate the IDIC 15 Road Race this year.  We have had to re-prioritize our family's activities and unfortunately, we will have to let go of the race.

We want to thank everyone that helped make this event such a big success over the last six years and helped raise thousands of dollars for our son's support group. The money raised allowed the IDEAS organization to pursue medical research, start a family registry and host three family conferences.  The group is indebted to all that our community has done for them and they also send their thanks and appreciation for your support.

At this time I would like to offer the opportunity for another organization to take over this race and pick-up where we are leaving off.  The road race has a great following and the addition of the 15k brought in even more runners to our area. With the right group of organizers, this race can help raise thousands of dollars for your group.  If you are interested in taking over the race, please contact me directly at 802-775-4646.

Again, thank you for understanding our decision and thanks to all you have done to help us with this great cause.

Warm regards,

Sarah and Erik Rasmussen
