July 25, 2004, Greencastle, Ind. - DePauw University senior Graham Wellman "is another college runner using the 5K as a training run," writes Michigan's Flint Journal in an article noting Wellman's victory in the Tuuri 5-kilometer race Saturday. "A two-time All-American in track at Division III DePauw, he posted his first Flint-area victory by edging Eric Larsen of Fenton by six seconds," Dan Nilsen writes.

The 21-year-old Wellman tells the newspaper, "Mostly, I spend the summers getting in shape for the fall. We have a lot of goals we want to get in November."

Tuuri began Tuuri Race Day -- which includes a 10K run, 5K run, 5K walk, children's challenge, and one-mile celebration walk -- in 1980 to promote physical well-being and to raise funds for pediatric care at Hurley Medical Center in Flint. More than 1,200 people participated in this year's event.
