Cove to Clover
Cove to Clover is an annual fundraiser co-founded by
John Nelson & Mick Purdy.
There's a 10K/5K/1K race/walk, a talent show, a pub
crawl, entertainment tent, beer garden, and shoe
giveway as part of the big wkend event. The 5K race
starts at Normandy Park Cove Community Ctr and weaves up
snake hill to finish at the clover line in front of Mick
Kelly's Irish Pub 435 SW 152nd St, Burien WA. At
the top of snake hill, there's a bagpiper to greet the
masses and hurry them on their way. The uprising
wall near, St Francis School, was manned by Celtic
Warriors from Highline High Schools' baseball team.
If you're a Boeing employee or retiree, and you
participated in the 10K/5K, be sure to sign up for a gift
The C2C is determining the final 2012 tally raised,
but proceeds from this successful event will
benefit the Highline Food bank, Hospitality House Women's
Shelter in Burien, and the Highline School
District. Big thanks go out to all the
volunteers who make this great event happen !
