Cold weather didn’t chill the turnout for Saturday, October 10th’s 5K event, as 137 adults and children showed up to participate! The top two racers completed the event in less than 20 minutes, and 17 participants had a time of 25 minutes or less. Top finishers received gift certificates and bagels for a year. The morning wasn’t just about racing, but rather a team effort to help raise support for Coyote Hill. The total amount raised reached over $5900!
VA Mortgage Center.com Charity Committee member, Alberto Barba, had this to say about the event, “I would like to thank all that participated in the first annual Coyote Hill/VAMC.com 5K. The turnout for the event far exceeded our expectations. Coyote Hill was carefully chosen from a list of many charitable organizations and I am confident that Coyote Hill was the perfect match. Coyote Hill is an amazing organization that truly blesses everyone it reaches. I look forward to next year; and doubling the participation for 5K 2010!”
