LETTERS: Volunteers appreciated

To the editor:

Mothers of Preschoolers of Marion sponsored the 2010 Run For Your Momma fundraiser Saturday at Marion County Lake.

This event included a half marathon race, half-marathon relay, and 2-mile fun run/walk. This year’s event was a huge success!

We had 185 participants from Kansas, Nebraska, and Oklahoma with their families and friends who visited Marion for this event. Many enjoyed the post race breakfast and attended the awards ceremony at the completion of the races.

This event would not have been successful without the help of the many community volunteers that gave their time.

We would also like to extend a special thank you to Marion County Lake Superintendent Steve Hudson and his wife, Jill; Tod Gordon; residents of the county lake; Marion emergency medical services; Marion police department; and race sponsors.

We are truly blessed to live in such a community that gives so much. Again, we thank all who participated and volunteered to make this fundraiser a great success!
