THE TAC TRADITION: Each year, the Employees Activities Association of the US Army Corps of Engineers Transatlantic Programs Center (TAC) hosts the TAC 5K to benefit a local non-profit organization which focuses on children. This year's beneficiary is Michael Reynold, a first grader at John Kerr Elementary School in Winchester, Virginia. Michael suffers from Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia (ALL). He is currently undergoing medical treatment at Duke University with the hope to eventually have a bone marrow transplant. His wish is to go with his family to Walt Disney World in Florida. The proceeds from this race will go to Children's Hopes and Dreams to fulfill Michael's wishes.

WHEN & WHERE: Saturday, 12 May 2001, at the Winchester Regional Airport south of Winchester, VA. Registration starts at 7:30 AM.
