Last Saturday morning turned out to be ideal for a Fun Run. A bit chilly, but the wind was calm and the sun was bright.
WINNERS Congratulations to our top three finishers! Bennett Blakeslee, Kael Patterson, and John Young crossed the finish line in a near photo finish. The top six finishers each received a $15 gift certificate to Road ID.
SPONSORS We owe a big thanks to our sponsors this year: Fareway and Anderson Erickson provided post-race food and chocolate mil…k. Road ID provided race bibs and gift certificates. Chick-Fil-A sent out their best cow to cheer everyone on. The Ankeny Police and Fire Departments helped start the race and stuck around to answer questions and let everyone check out their vehicles and equipment. Panfoto.us captured all the fun in photos throughout the event. And many other local businesses also provided coupons, freebies and gift certificates in your race bags.
PHOTOS Photos from the Fun Run are available on Facebook (see link below). Feel free to tag yourself or your friends and share the photos. If you are interested in obtaining a print or digital copy of any of the pictures, you can contact Paul directly through FB or via email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
SHIRTS Those of you waiting on shirts–they have shipped and should arrive by Monday. We’ll get them to your kids at school to bring home early next week.
PARTICIPANTS AND VOLUNTEERS Thank you to all of our participants and volunteers who made this year’s fun run a huge success! After expenses, we made $782.26 for the Ashland Ridge PTO.
