The June 23 Tampico Dutch Dash 5K Run/Walk had an amazing turnout at Booth Park.

I want to say thank you to all of the sponsors, helpers, and participants. With all of your help and support of the race, we were able to donate $1,000 to the Ronald Reagan Birthplace; $1,000 to the Tampico Food Pantry; and $500 each to the Tampico Fire and Tampico Ambulance departments.

Male finishers, first through third place, were Chris Scott, 17:46; Aaron Thede, 19:59; and David Stickel, 20:13.

Female finishers, first through third place, were Casidy Foltz, 20:46; Makaley Valazquez, 22:46; and Olivia DeWitt, 23:38.

Note to readers – Jessie Church was the chairwoman of Dutch Dash.
