Ideal weather conditions benefited the Wright Run 5k/10k, as 175 runners and walkers wearing bright sky blue shirts participated in the second annual event this past Saturday.
The fund-raising race began at the old WMH Medical Office Building and included Riverside Country Club as a part of the route. The theme of the event was health care awareness and raised $8,000 which benefits the walking trail and memorial garden project.
βThis yearβs support from the participants and sponsors was truly special, so having a beautiful morning was icing on the cake for this event,β said WMH Foundation Board Member and Wright Run Chair Cara McClellan. βItβs so nice to see people bring their family and friends to run and walk, benefiting not only their personal health but our local hospital foundation as well.β
Finishing medals were awarded to each participant and trophies were presented to the top three overall male and female 5K finishers, the top male and female in the 10K race, and the top two teams.
