Fitgers 5k, Meet Kate Kucinski, What Happens Behind The Scenes

Chris Allen
Chris Allen

Kate Kucinski is the Public Relations Director for Grandma’s Marathon, which means she handles any races that are associated with Grandma’s Marathon and the Young Athletes Foundation. Kate is hard to talk to on race day because she has so much to do. So do all the volunteers for the race. 

There are people who hand out the shirts, the refreshments, and the shirts. People who handle the bookkeeping and sign you up. There are people setting up the start and finish line. People who have to get the sponsors and who is sponsoring what. People order the shirts…….I can’t even get into it all. On race day, here is a short run down from Kate herself and the winner of the race.
