This past Saturday my MOM was busy with our 6th Annual George E. Wahlen Veterans Fun Run and Chili Cook Off. It's a benefit to help us raise money for our local veteran's home. And boy oh boy is it fun fun fun. There is a 5K run and 1 mile walk that starts at the Veterans home and ends at my church. Then at the church there are lots of peeps who have cooked all kinds of chili and other peeps go around and taste each chili and then they vote with green papers who's the best. Plus there is a huge bouncy house of the little ones, a pumpkin patch, horse rides and more. So I had MOM put together a little video of some of the fun that was had. You will notice some familiar faces. And you will notice this is a dog friendly event, there were even dogs that ran the race! The only thing us doggies could not do was get in the bounce house. Hummm I wonder why. Anyway enjoy the video.
We did raise lots of green papers for our wonderful veterans. It will go into their activity fund where they can now go fishing, takes trips, do gardening, visit all kinds of places that charge a fee and so so much more. Last year their was enough money left over that the activity director was able to buy each Veteran a very cool polo shirt with their military insignia embroidered on it! Have you thanked a Veteran today?
