A run to start the fun PDF Print E-mail

Molly Hutchinson (left) and Kathy Woodmancy were among the throng of runners/walkers who started their morning early on the 4th of July at Grant City Park. Image Total Fitness hosted the annual “Firecracker Fun Run” event which included all age groups—from babies in strollers to a 94-year-old walker. Medals, water, prizes and music greeted them at the finish, followed by a fundraising breakfast hosted by Perkins County Community Foundation. A large crowd assembled in the park early morning and hung around throughout a day filled with activities including games, competitions, food, folly, swimming, car and bike show, dog and car washes, rib cook off, and evening meal hosted by Perkins County Youth Development. The day’s tribute to our nation’s independence culminated with a spectacular fireworks show. (Photo by Jan Rahn)
