Bomhoff ‘Goes the Distance’ for Franklin Elementary — and then some
Greg Bomhoff went above and beyond his quest to run for 24 straight hours to raise money for Franklin Elementary School’s physical education programs last Friday. He completed 515 laps — 128 3/4 miles — around the school’s dirt oval, crossing the finish line shortly before 9 a.m. to a crowd of cheering students, parents and community members. The 41-year-old Granite Bay resident, who has two sons at the school, planned to run 125 miles and surpassed that goal as the sun rose.
