Editor’s Note: This is a thank you from Echo Hill Golf Professional Chip Fox.

On Saturday November 12th, Echo Hills golf course held its fifth annual 5K run/walk to honor our veterans and to benefit the Wounded Warriors Project. This was the third year that we added a run along with the walk. Although the turnout was not what I wanted, we had many who took part in the chilly but beautiful sunny day.

I would like to thank everyone who helped make this event a success.

First of all, I would like to thank the City of Piqua for allowing me to use Echo Hills golf course. The beauty of the course and the challenge of some of the hills make this an enjoyable walk/run for everyone.

Next, I would like to thank our own local media; Rob Kiser and the Piqua Daily Call for helping spread the word. Thank you to our local McDonalds for donating the coffee. Also, thank you to the VFW and the American Legion for purchasing the T shirts. Thanks to Gail, Scott and Kyle Reardon of Atlantis Sportswear for all the help with the shirts. Those that ran/walked in the 5K enjoyed the golf course decorated in American flags along the course. These flags were donated by Kathy Henne of Re/Max Finest.

The 5K run/walk went smoothly once again with the great support from Marsha Garrett and Jody and Bonnie Josefovsky. I would also like to thank Rene Copsey for all the great art work on the signage. Once again Cindy and Ron Pearson have made this an easy task with all of their dedicated work. Because of their tireless effort we are able to send $1795 to the Wounded Warriors Project so thank you Ron & Cindy and everyone who participated. Lastly I want to thank all the Veterans and all the men and women serving our country today and a personal thank you to Brian Crawford and Jeff Bradley.

See all of Piqua on November 11th, 2017 for the sixth annual 5K run/walk.
