Please join us tomorrow if you can to celebrate the life of friend, runner, and coach, Leo Richard at 1:30 p.m., Saturday, November 9, 2019 at Fellowship Bible Church, 6700 E. Broadway between Wilmot and Kolb.

Leo was the 2014 recipient of the Spirit of Rob Bell Award. You might’ve seen Leo on the podium at a SAR race, running with friends while training to qualify for the Boston Marathon, or cheering on his running friends. He was always running and always with friends. We absolutely loved how much Leo loved running.
