Little League Honorees/Credit: Reston Little League

Little League Honors 10 — Eight players and two umpires have earned Reston Little League’s annual Leadership Awards and a scholarship for  “sportsmanship during past seasons, their potential for continued leadership development as they graduate on to new teams and schools, and their love of the game.” Awardees are: Jack Thompson (Athletics), Aiden O’Donovan (Phillies), Josh Meade (Yankees), Sully Gholson (Nationals), Vikrant Magadi (Rays), Shea Huntington (Pirates), Nick Gryski (Red Sox), Braden Huebsch (Mets), Owen Walker (Umpire), and Kyle Sather (Umpire).

What Will Happen to “Margaret’s Garden?” — A developer wants to purchase the land on Lawyers Road/Reston Parkway that for more than 50 years was the home and iris garden of Margaret Wilson Thomas. Thomas, who died two years ago, grew thousands of flowers on her property. There is an effort underway to move the flowers to various lots in Herndon. [Fairfax Times]

Reston’s Getting A Splatter Run — Mark your calendars for May 10. That’s when the Splatter Run 5K to benefit Young Life Fairfax will take place at Reston’s Lake Fairfax Park. A splatter race (also called a color run) is where runners don white for the race and are pelted from the sidelines with color powder, finishing up looking like they ran through a rainbow. Younglife is a Christian non profit that hosts summer camps for children in Fairfax and Loudoun Counties. [Young Life]

Chris Green is one of the DMV’s finest fitness instructors. A Lululemon and South Block ambassador, he is a coach and mentor to so many. He embodies grace, positivity and motivation in ways that no one else can. If we could all learn a thing or two from him, the world would be a much better place. He does so much for others, and does so with a smile on his face 99% of the time.

He recently ruptured his Achilles and has an incredibly long and tough journey ahead. As if COVID hadn’t impacted fitness professionals enough, throw this in the mix and it’s a double, even triple whammy. CG is no longer able to work and do what he loves for the time being because of this and we’d love your support.
