WOW! is how to sum it up for today’s turnout. We would like send out a huge heartfelt THANK YOU to Chick-fil-A Hagerstown for believing in our organization, our mission, and what we stand for. Thank you to all the sponsors that generously gave to make the event happen; Connect Race Series for running the event—all the personnel was a pleasure to work with and very professional—they also made it FUN for all that showed up; volunteers that took time out of their busy schedule to be a part of this; EMT personnel for being there to provide medical assistance if needed; law enforcement to ensure safety was a priority for all our runners/walkers to blocking the streets off; City of Hagerstown for allowing us to run/walk their streets; Washington County Parks and Recreation for allowing us to encroach on their beautiful park to raise awareness with this event; Brook Lane, Citizens Assisting and Sheltering the Abused, and Over the Rainbow Children’s Advocacy Center for providing information and education to the community members; and last but not least the participants—without you we could not have made this happen. Thank you for showing your support and joining us in the fight against child abuse. Please check back with us occasionally as we have some wonderful events that are in the planning stages. Please share our page and encourage others to get involved with us to fight the fight.
