Tony Overbay running for 24 hours Friday-Saturday

-A +A
Tony Overbay, a Lincoln father of four, is beginning the Save Our Sports 4.2 mile fun run on Saturday at Glen Edwards Middle School a day early. Overbay won’t begin his run at Saturday’s 8 a.m. starting time along with the other runners. He started his run Friday morning, just after school started. Overbay is hoping to raise awareness, and also funds, for the school’s sports programs, which could be eliminated as budget cuts continue to hit California schools. Glen Edwards Middle School students are running with Overbay in their P.E. classes Friday. GEMS has a fundraising dinner at the track Friday night and Overbay will continue to run through the night, finishing the run with the 4.2 mile fun on Saturday morning. Follow Overbay through his training for the event by signing up for the Saturday run, either as a runner, a volunteer or by making a donation. Visit supportgemssports.com for more information. Cheer on Overbay on Friday and Saturday as he runs the GEMS track for 24 hours. Food and festivities will be going on Friday night. Adults are $20 and Kids Fun Run is $10. All proceeds will go to Save Our Sports
