Thomas (right), Past Grand Master Carl Fitje (second from left), and Grand Secretary Paul Rosen (left), all of The Grand Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons of the State of New York. Walt Gillis, who was a Mason in Collabergh-Radium Lodge #859 and a champion for fighting hunger in the spirit of Harry Chapin’s legacy, was a director of the race for many years and worked closely with the Masons to maximize the impact of this event. Walt’s wife Shirley has been a director on the race committee since its second year, and along with the entire race committee, is very grateful to have the continuing generous support of the Masons.
