Powered by Pears

Last weekend, Ray Crittenden, Mid-Atlantic Regional Manager at the Pear Bureau, participated in the Ukrop’s Monument Avenue 10k with his son, Matthew. The race, which is held in Richmond, Virginia, is one of the biggest road races in the country!

Ray and Matthew not only finished the race in good time, but walked an extra three miles to and from their car, racking up NINE miles of walking on Saturday! Nice work, guys! Just goes to show what you can do when you’re powered by pears…
