To the Editor:
The Sandwich Park District staff and commissioners want to thank all the participants who took part in the 34th annual Freedom Run. Over 77 runners/walkers took to the course and conquered it on a beautiful, cool summer morning, starting from Knights Park. Before the road race began, the little ones took on the Trot Tot course and took home some great prizes. Sandwich Mayor Rick Olson was our race starter and Juan Garcia was the event DJ. Thank you Mayor and Juan for getting our runners pumped up and ready to go!
We also want to extend a special thanks to the following sponsors and volunteers: Sandwich Police Department and Street Department, Sandwich Emergency Management Services, Northwestern Medicine – (Valley West Hospital), Just In Time Heating and Cooling, Angie’s Sugar Buzz Bakery, Water Wagon of Plano, and JC Fitness. Special thanks to all the volunteers who helped execute the race for all to have an enjoyable event.
Thank you again and we look forward to seeing you at next year’s Freedom Run!
Sports coordinator, Sandwich Park District
