We had a great day Saturday June 12th with 12 non-profit organizations represented and some of the greatest ever volunteers helping us, including the Brigham City Youth Council and the Box Elder High School Drill team. What a fun day and fun group of people joining us. We had 22 runners complete the 5K with 17 year old Gerardo Reynaza of Brigham City being our top runner at 23:45 minutes. Our other runners in the top 3 were Clint Flinders of Brigham City (24:40 Minutes) in the 35-44 age group, and Jason Beagley of Tremonton (24:57 minutes) in the 45-54 age group.
More information and pictures coming soon. A big thank you to everyone who came out to join us and to all our sponsors and donors. We also are thankful for support and discounts from Box Elder News Journal, Cover -up Printing, and Zion's Bank.
