The first annual Breast Cancer fun walk/run was a success. Over 100 people registered for the event but due to other commitments and the cooler weather not all were able to participate.

We would like to thank all our sponsors: monetary — A. J. Gerard, Coulee Dam Federal Credit Union and Costco (north Spokane branch). Food Donations:  Safeway for the water, Ed’s Meats for wieners and Franz bread for the hot dog buns. Gift Certificates:  Loepp Furniture, Hometown Pizza, Coulee Hardware, Pepper Jack’s, Café Espresso, Fusion Café, R&A Café, LaPresa, Grand Grindz, Melody Restaurant, TeePee Drive In, Flo’s Café, Siam Palace and Harvest Foods. Gwen Hilson for the posters, Natalie Dennis (Sweet Olive Tree) for items for the gift baskets, Jonathan and Jessica Owens, and The Star for the coverage. To all our volunteers, and most of all to all the participants, a big THANK YOU. 

We also would like to thank the city of Grand Coulee, the Bureau of Reclamation for the permit and Lynne Brougher for helping us get the permit, the Parks and Rec Commission and Oasis Lawn Care for opening the bathrooms.

We are looking forward to next year with a few corrections. Linda Esmond was the winner of the participants’ basket. Tickets are still available for the big basket to be given away on Nov. 2, at the Book and Gift Fair at the hospital. Contact Clea Pryor at 633-0597 for tickets.

It took a lot of people to put on this event, and we thank you all. If I have forgotten to thank someone, I do apologize; just know we appreciate what you contributed.

Clea Pryor
