I extend my gratitude to those who helped make this year’s Yule Run 5K such a success! Your continued dedication to the race and Greenwood has once again helped exceed our expectations for the race. I first thank our sponsors, A&P Tax Commission, Farmers Bank, Walters and Gaston Law Firm, Johnson Dermatology, McDonalds, Greenwood Athletic Club, Air Care Systems, Cornerstone Veterinary Clinic and Bishop Family Dentistry. Without your contribution, the race would not have taken place or been as successful as it was. Thank you Greenwood Police for your continued support of the race. Thank you to the First Baptist Church for the use of the Edge building. It is so nice to be able to go into a nice warm building and warm up after a cold run. Thanks to the wonderful support staff who worked tirelessly and endlessly before, during and after the race. Steve Sartain, Laura Jones, Amy Daniels, Miranda Eserman, Theresa Burtchett, Cinda Bell, Jan Gates, Marty Nelson, Mike McAlister, Aaron Meeker, Tanya Taylor, Mark Hunicutt, Claudia Davis, Sandee Atkins, Mike, Aidan, and Lorna Bryant, Alex Delcarman, Todd and Marsha Pippin, Rachael Grigg. I also thank the runners, we must have sponsors, and support, but we need runners and participants as well. It takes all of the above to pull off a successful race and you did it, including a couple of Santa’s and Elf’s. I hope I haven’t left anyone out, and if so I apologize, but please know, your efforts are appreciated.
