The 40th Annual Philly Bar Race for the Kids

Unlike last year’s Philadelphia Bar Association’s race that was held in a downpour, the sun was bright and the skies were clear. It appeared to have drawn a record group who seemed to be full of spirit for a very good cause.

The race which benefits the Support Center for Child Advocates is held every year on the third Sunday in May. For the past several years T. Morgan has served as the Grand Marshall for the event. He was at the finish line helping with the prizes and posing for pictures. Below see the pictures of those who won prizes. Hopefully we got all the names right. Please let us know if there was a mistake and we will be happy to correct it.

You can see pictures for the previous few years by going to the News & Events section. We hope this will encourage some of you to take part next year.

The only sad part of the day was that it was the last time that the man who started the event 40 years ago, is stepping down as the race director. Manny Pokotilow has worked very hard to make this annual race a huge success. It will be very hard to fill his shoes. We all want to thank him for his service over those forty years.

    Hey T., I finally got on to check it out, and I have Elliot Feldman's picture! (I think I held a handful of bananas.) Elliot is pictured 2x. I know he's more handsome, so I should not complain lol! But unless I get his bank account with it, I don't want his age! I'll keep mine, thank you very much!

    Thanks for your service, along side Manny's!
