5K to benefit Salisbury Police officer with pancreatic cancer

By David Freeze
For the Salisbury Post
Wiley Lamm has done so much to help others over the years. Sunday afternoon’s Wun for Wiley 5K was an opportunity for those who wanted to give back to Lamm and thank him for his efforts. Lamm is battling pancreatic cancer and his medical costs are rising. All proceeds for the event will help defray those medical costs.
Lamm spoke to the runners and walkers at the start of the 5K at Knox Middle School and also served as the official starter. He was able to stay at the race and was one of the last to leave.
“The outpouring of love and show of support for Wiley was tremendous,” said race director Patrick Smith. As runners and walkers registered, they often wrote the check for more than the entry fee. Everything went off without a hitch. Thanks so much to the sponsors and the volunteers.”
Anthony Nero of Spencer was the overall winner of the race with a time of 18 minutes and 18 seconds, while Dr. Acquawon Stallworth of Salisbury added to her recent top finishes with another win as she topped the females in 22 minutes and 45 seconds. Mason McDaniel won the half-mile fun run with a time of 2:59. Just over 150 people registered for the 5K and fun run.
Gerry Wood Auto Group was the title sponsor for the events. Other sponsors included the Salisbury Police Department, the Massage Studio of China Grove, Knox Middle School, the Salisbury Rowan Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 87, The Forum, Apple Baking Company, Vac and Dash, PAPA & M.A. and the Salisbury Rowan Runners.
