Marathon runner and Kent Children's Center (KCC) alumna Sarah Chase will present the medals she received for running in the recent Dublin Marathon to KCC children Dec. 17 at 11 a.m.

The marathon was Ms. Chase's second, having run the Flora London Marathon in April.

Ms. Chase ran the Dublin marathon, which is 26.2 miles, in three hours and 49 minutes, coming in 40 minutes faster than her first marathon.

She ran for the children of the Kent Children's Center and raised more than $600.
