Last year’s event went very well. With over 120 runners participating, there was plenty of excitement around the course. All registered runners were given a race t-shirt for their participation.There were great giveaways, and raffles to win great prizes. We were delighted to be involved and to support this community activity. Our Evans Mills General Manager David was also able to reconnect with an old battle buddy whom he had served with in both Iraq and Afghanistan who was also at the event.
The Northern New York Veteran’s Outreach Center needs volunteers for this event. Volunteers will assist in directing runners on the race course. Let’s make a difference together.
