Sunday, June 13, 2021 — Over 270 awesome Coe Cougars, families, teachers and staff jogged/walked/ran the “Hurray to Murray” 5k around Queen Anne’s crown throughout five waves. They were joined by retiring Principal Turner and incoming Principal Backstrom, all in the spirit of fun and to honor Mr. Murray retirement after 25 years at Coe!
This event could not have happened without superstar organizers Megan Lee and Nicole Mirchandani, plus planning and execution assistance from the Coe Spirit Committee: Shawn Perkins (also onsite volunteer coordinator), Julie Schlosser (also event volunteer), Kalisa Owens (also event MC), Portia Langworthy and Anna Moran.
Special thanks also goes out to Don Lee and Rishi Mirchandani for all the set up and tear down, Nicole Tromble, Kirsten Leng and Margo Scheet for taking on multiple shifts, PLUS Harper and Brad Owens, Sara Vora, Penny Eversole, Lilian Lody Branas, Colleen Woods, Shannon Bentley, Elisa Keller, and Kathy Roeder!!
And of course a huge shoutout to all our participants including former Coe students/families and honorary folk that came out of retirement to either volunteer or cheer: Katy and Tim Hall; Lori Ramage; Stacie, Erin and Jack Conway; Miki Tahihana; Amy, Cooper and Lucy Laybourn; Peter Fleischer; Jack and Libby Lee; Zoe Mirchandani; Rachel Tromble; Mabel and Sophie Robbins; Vince Recupero; Theo Eversole; Rohan Sharma; Valerie, Spencer, Annabelle and Lucy Dillard; Nanci and Erik Murphy.
WOW… What an amazing COE-mmunity we have! Thank you!!
