Bay area alums run to support the DP

Inspired by several predecessors from the 125th board, former Senior Sports Editors Cal Silcox ’12 and Megan Soisson ’13 (who served together on the 127th Board) ran the Giant Race half marathon in San Francisco this September, raising more than $2,800 for the DP in the process. The funds will support the paper’s Donald Neiman Fund, which pays DP student journalists for summer journalism internships that would otherwise be unpaid.

After running San Francisco’s classic Bay to Breakers race together in 2013, the duo looked for a bigger challenge this year in the half-marathon. And after seeing DP alums Emily Babay ’10, Alyssa Schwenk ’10 and Anne Dobson’08 raise $2,000 for the DP last year running the Philadelphia Half, Soisson and Silcox set their sights higher.
