Pleased with new 10/5K run

Hats off to the organizers of the first Bridge to Bridge 10/5K run. The race was Sept. 14, and what a wonderful job everyone did.

It was great to see such a good turnout for the event. We came in all sizes, shapes, ages, and colors, and I think it’s fair to say we had a ball.

Special thank you to the dozens of volunteers who gave up their Saturday morning to help. This event did, indeed, bridge our communities together. I loved the cheering as winners were announced. 

Now that I think of it, I guess everyone was a winner – organizers, volunteers, participants, and our communities. Job well done.
