Thank you Miles of Hope Survivors, Sponsors, Volunteers, Participants

Wednesday, April 27, 2016

Saturday’s (April 23, 2016) 13th annual Family Fun 5K Run/Walk at Tymor Park in the Town of Union Vale was a great success.  Mother Nature made the morning a bit challenging with some gusty winds, but with sunshine and blue skies peeking through the clouds, there were "miles of smiles" all around with 268 5K finishers and 25 finishers in the kids 1-mile event.  The overall female winner was Margaret Wentworth (22:46:55), while Jon Tuttle was the overall male winner (18:10:19).

Thanks to all who participated, be it a walker, runner, supporter, volunteer - THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR BEING THERE!
