Andy Putman, left, and his friend Shane Zamora are just west of Blanket as they complete their 27-mile run from the Brown County Courthouse to the Comanche County Courthouse Monday night. The run, which Putman undertook to help raise money to offset living expenses as he pursues his college degree, took the pair seven hours. We really had to pace ourselves. It was awesome, Putman said. Putman, a married father of two, said hes raised $4,200 so far, and is still taking donations to set up a scholarship fund for non-traditional students who find themselves in situations similar to his - where holding a full-time job while attending class full-time is impossible. To contact Putman about a donation, call 998-2771 or e-mail putput05@yahoo.com. Photo by Bill Crist
