The Tacoma Great Strides is the second-largest in the state, surpassed only by Seattle. Jenny Adams and her committee did their usual excellent job and Outback Steakhouse served up the food. The event had a record 660 walkers and raised a record $112,000. The Bosanko foursome joined Tori, Carol and Robert to make a Trooper sevensome.
