The Old River-Winfree Founders Day 2010 5K Run/Walk benefiting the Wounded Warrior Project in Memory of Pfc Wesley R. Riggs 2010.
The people you see in this picture all contributed greatly whether with time, money, spirit, or compassion.
You see Paramedics, Coaches, Bank Officials, a Commissioner, a Father of A Hero. We come from all walks of life for our Warriors coming home from the Iraq and Afghanistan Theaters of War; and for the one who gave the Ultimate Sacrifice.
The communities should be proud of these dedicated, compassionate people who gave up an early Saturday Morning to make as best an event as they could for the runners and walkers that came to give back by their sweat and sometimes tears.
We can not thank Barbers Hill Bank enough. Because of them unselfishly sponsoring this event we were able to raise $7110. The check (held by Commissioner Nelson and Bob Allen) symbolically represents the check that was sent off earlier in the month to the Wounded Warrior Project. $711 is still in the bank account for a deserving 2011 Senior at Barbers Hill High School through the Pfc Wesley R. Riggs Memorial Scholarship Fund.
There are not enough words to express the gratitude to each and every person that helped with this event. They each touched a Soldier or Marine with their involvement in the 2010 Run. Along with the runners, their hands are outstretched to give a lift to a Wounded Warrior whether through loss of limb, Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome, or the other physical, mental, and spiritually trials our heroes endure.
A big “Hooah”!!!
