When was the last time you entered a sporting event and found yourself competing in a world-wide championship? Ummm, for me that would be never.


Chris Sturdevant, better known to us as a fellow Rotarian and the curator of the Midwest Chapter of the Cold War Museum, is going to Finland to compete in the World Masters Athletics in the 1500 and 1800 meter indoor races. Chris has been running since high school, but in the last few years he started entering regional and national meets, and winning, and entering at the next level, and winning again. Now he is competing at a world level.

While Chris is there, he plans to exchange flags on behalf of his local Rotary . Since he's also a children's librarian, maybe he'll visit a library or too. We're proud to sponsor his trip and be a small part of his exciting journey!
