Runge Family of Cochranville Crowdfunding Trip to Olympics


Cochranville native Cierra Runge officially punched her ticket to the Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro last month.

Now, her family needs your help in financing theirs.

Runge, a member of the United States’ 4×200-meter freestyle relay team, has fulfilled her lifelong dream of making it to the world’s largest stage. And her family – who played such a critical role in her development, investing so much in her passion for the sport – would like nothing more than to share the moment with her.

The cost for the Runge family – mother Diane, father Scott, brother Taylor, and sister Maddie – to travel to Brazil is well north of $10,000.
