Hi, I’m Kevin Walsh. I live in Scranton and work for Allied Services as the Assistant Coordinator of the workshop at the William Warren Vocational Rehabilitation Center. I am a graduate of Scranton Technical High School and the University of Scranton.
I have always been active in sports. I was an amateur fighter and participated in modified softball, flag football, and basketball leagues. In addition, I coached many levels of baseball, football, and basketball.
I love to run and have competed in the Steamtown Marathon 5 times and the Run for the Red Marathon to benefit the American Red Cross in the Poconos. I also compete in races throughout Pennsylvania, including the Broad Street 10 mile run in Philadelphia, the 9 mile Run for the Diamonds in Berwick, the Montage Mountain 10k, the YMCA 10 mile run, and the Jingle Bell Run (5k). I had the opportunity to run with the Ryan’s Run 4 team, and also was a part of Ryan’s Run 3, recovery effort.
Running the New York City Marathon was an amazing experience, from the international parade, the fan support, to ending up in a restaurant with two other team members, sitting next to Geoffrey Mutai, who ran the fastest marathon ever, and who also defended his win of the New York City Marathon two years in a row. After completing Ryan’s Run 4, I ran the Steamtown Inaugural Half Marathon, along with Scranton Running Company sponsored events, the Broad Street 10 and the Achilles Hope 5mile, in Central Park (N.Y) .
I’m very happy to be able to run the New York City Marathon as part of Team Leckey and to represent Allied Services in the world’s largest marathon.
