Park Forest, IL--(ENEWSPF)-- Members of the Park Forest Running and Pancake Club had the unique opportunity to support an Olympian. Club member Christine Magnuson earned two silver medals at the Summer Olympics in Beijing, China.
The trip, however, was not free.
When club members learned that Beijing hotel rooms ran in excess of $1000 a night, the club decided to help with a donation. Club members authorized a $500 donation to the Magnuson family.
Christine's parents, Geri and Bill Magnuson, are also members of the PFRPC.
Club president Fred Mazurski expressed his pride in Christine's accomplishments, "PFRPC is extremely proud of club member Christine Magnuson for her achievement of two silver medals at the Beijing Olympics. Congrats to Christine on her world class achievement."
