To the editor:
It was a pleasure to see 46 area runners race through a 24-degree wind chilled and rain-soaked 5K obstacle course on Veterans Day. This event is to honor veterans and raise funds for the Leavenworth High School Wrestling Team.
The members of the wrestling team aided by the LHS ROTC Cadets did a fantastic job providing assistance as road guards, course marshalls, registration, etc.. for the 46 runners who showed up to complete this obstacle course. Our local sponsors, KCKCC, Leavenworth Paper Supply, Rick Hansen Re/Max, Studdard Moving, Friends of LHS Wrestling, Leavenworth Family Dental, The Smile Centre. Ken's Garage, Muffler Masters, O'Reilly Auto Parts, Hibbit Sports, Saint John's Hospital, Mr. Goodcents, Papa Murphy's, Countrymart, and the Lanterne Rouge Volunteer Group, help make this event a success. If I missed anyone that sponsored this event, please accept our thanks and hope that next year you will continue to support this event.
Without the leadership of Catey Edwards and Julie Butler, who created this event and their hard work, this event would not have been a success. If you missed this event, you will have another chance next year.
