Sheralyn Hibbons, 11, an Imagine School of North Port student, finishes the Crab Crawl 5K run/walk, held at the Charlotte Sports Park off 776, in 26 minutes,16 seconds on Saturday morning. She is sponsored by Dean McConville, a State Farm agent in North Port.
NORTH PORT — Eleven-year-old Sheralyn Hibbons loves to run, but her family’s economic challenges precluded her from taking part in
local races — until she met North Port businessman Dean McConville, who learned of her plight and covered her registration fees.
“I have run close to 50 races and I’ve won a lot of them,” Sheralyn said. “I couldn’t have done any of this without Dean. I think it’s great, what he’s done for me.”
