On Sunday November 14, Homestead and Keys Gate resident  Asuka Barkley entered the First State Bank Key Largo Bridge Run dedicating her effort to her husband, Air Force Master Sergeant CJ Barkley who is currently stationed in Korea. Asuka won the Gold Medal in her division while pushing their two year old daughter Mia in a stroller for the entire 5 K. It was an extra ordinary effort especially appropriate during Veterans Day weekend.

Another noteworthy performance at the run was from Key Largo’s O’Keeffe family. Mom Melissa, Dad Mic and both their sons, Jack and Henry ran Sunday. The family brought home three Golds and a Silver. A truly remarkable

performance by a community-minded family.
