Annual Edon Pumpkin Run Held at Walz Park

Edon 2013 CC PumpkinRun - LHF (3)WBy Lucinda Held-Faulhaber – THE VILLAGE REPORTER

Excitement spread throughout the crowd as parents, grandparents and friends gathered for the Sixth Annual Edon Pumpkin Run held Thursday, October 25, 2013 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!
