Bellin Run: Shirt Collector

By Mike Conroy. CREATED Jun 8, 2012

GREEN BAY, Wis.--People collect a lot of things. Coins, stamps and even books. But how many people can put their collection in the washing machine? Tom EdVillers has collected Bellin Run shirts since 1977. "1977 Bellin Run gave out t-shirts. Second year they gave out a pair of shorts." Tom recalled. " I think that was the only year they gave out shorts.  After that it was all t-shirts. After the tenth year to the runners that participated in all the Bellin Runs they also gave out a running suit which was very nice."

His collection is not the only reason why Tom keeps coming back. "It's just a good time. After many years you meet a lot of the same people. You see them once a year at the Bellin Run. It's a great time"

You can watch Tom and thousands of other Bellin Runners on MyNEW32. Live coverage begins Saturday, June 9th at 7:00am
