On behalf of the Greenwood Chamber of Commerce, may I extend my gratitude to those who helped make this year’s FreedomFest 5K such a success! Your continued dedication to the race and Greenwood has once again helped exceed our expectations for the race.

First, I thank our sponsors: A&P Tax Commission; Farmers Bank; Walters, Gaston, Allison & Parker Law Firm; Johnson Dermatology; McDonalds; and Greenwood Athletic Club. Without your contribution, the race would not have taken place or been as successful as it was.

Thanks to the wonderful support staff who worked tirelessly and endlessly before, during and after the race. Steve Sartain, Tracy Haest, Claudia Davis, Tessa Dean, Lori Bauer, Alex and Anna Delcarman, Jan Gates, Theresa Burchett, Cinda Bell, Doris Tate, Wanda Kindberg, Ray Webb, Dr. Bryan Bishop, Jim and Janet Cox, Larry and Mary Stanfill, Todd and Marsha Pippin, Ronnie Deal, Rachael Grigg, and First Baptist Church for the use of the Edge building.

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 the runners dressed in patriotic attire. I hope I haven’t left anyone out, and if so, I apologize, but please know, your efforts are appreciated.

Randy Davis

FreedomFest 5K Director
