Utkarsh Vasa, a junior at San Ramon Valley High placed first among high school entries and was awarded $100 First.

The winners were also awarded certificates and medals on ribbons.

Danville residents Julia and Julius Durmis walked in the 19th annual Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk on Sunday, Sept. 16, joining more than 7,000 participants who are expected to raise $6.3 million for can research and care for children and adults at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. The walkers use the historic 26.2-mile route from Hopkinton to Boston and can choose from four different routes.

"The Walk gives people the opportunity to join a community of friends and families to support cancer research while honoring everyone who is or has been directly affected by the disease," says Ed Wiederhold, director of the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk.
