Every runner in Richmond knows the Grove Avenue Water Stop.It's a small, simple, act of kindness: a small cooler of water, a container of cups, a trash can and some dog treats. It even has a Facebook fan page. From the Richmond Times Dispatch from November, 2011.
Every morning, Sheri Crowell fills up the Rubbermaid drink cooler with water and ice. It sits on a small, metal table on the edge of the street with a trash can beside it to catch the empties.
