Edon Mini-CC Pumpkin Run Nov2014 PHOTO PROVIDED (1) WEBAnticipation resonated across the crowd of parents, grandparents and friends gathered for the Seventh Annual Edon Pumpkin Run held Tuesday, October 21, 2014 at Walz Park. Organized by Cross Country Coach Terry Whitney (with additional support from Edon Cross Country Teams and Edon Athletic Boosters), the event is similar to other Mini-Bomber programs offered at Edon Northwest Local Schools. Intended to encourage students to learn about the sport of running and to become more physically fit and active, organizers simply hoped everyone just had fun!
