Thanks to everyone that helped with the Whoville Ugly Sweater Run on Saturday. Despite the rain, we had a good turnout…which warmed our hearts and was the sunshine to the day. 74 runners signed up to run in the event and about 1/3rd participated in the run...in the rain.
Special thanks to the set up/tear down crew, water station volunteers, and people that donated refreshments: Constable Phillip Mauldin, Hallsville City Police Department, Jim Weatherall, Lyndy Humphrey & her granddaughter, Bailey, Rande Grotefendt, Paula, Jason, and Jaydin Ainsworth, Leslie Nealy, Lisa Adams, DaWanna Vrana, Kandi Horn, Brandy Hogan, Jackie VanDusen, Ashleigh Buchanan, Mark Johnson, Coach Jared Duncan and the host of XC team members (Bronwyn Buchanan, Gracie Floyd, Charis Sasseen, Emily Murphrey, Bethany Rogers, Jayden Dobbs, Brandon Wadlington, Blakely Young, Cooper Johnson...I hope I didn't forget anyone) that volunteered and some actually ran in the race, too. Also, to Johnny Horne for route sign and goodie bag donations, Kelly Plunk-Cookie Jar & Pantry, Marisol’s Mexican Café, Stephanie Hunt-Johnson, Lisa Mull, Pizza House, Bodacious BBQ-Hallsville, Calie’s Acre, Justin Franklin-Denny’s Longview, and Tommy & Traci Dionisio of Main Street Coffee House for the delicious, hot coffee. And, of course, let's not forget Santa and his elf, Joshua! We couldn’t have pulled it off without you. You all put the “Z” in Amazing! Surely you're all on Santa's NICE list!
