On Saturday, May 4th, the Kohl Elementary 5K Run/Fun Walk was more than just a local, philanthropic race for Boulder-based Spectra Logic. In addition to helping support a great cause – Kohl Elementary – the race also honored the memory of Terence Doherty, a Spectra Logic employee who passed away last year in a tragic biking accident in Boulder.
The race started with a special tribute at the start line and all event t-shirts honored him with his personal motto “el latido del viento” or “pulse of the wind” on the sleeve. It was a beautiful way to honor and remember Terence and meant a lot to all of us at Spectra.
2013 marks the third year that Spectra Logic has participated in Kohl’s 5K Run/Fun Walk as Education Champion donating money, resources and volunteers. This year’s 5K race helped raise more than $3,700 with 100 percent of event proceeds going to help purchase new playground equipment.
