THANK YOU to everyone who came out and participated in this year’s 8 Mile Challenge! We had ideal weather and perfect attendance. Every single person who registered came to the walk. In the world of event planning, that is practically unheard of. We are so proud of you for taking time out of your day to walk and do something great for your health. And thanks to you, we are able to make a generous donation again this year to the Breaking Free Riding Therapeutic Center. Congratulations to those lucky enough to win prizes which included $50 gas cards, Ray Ban sunglasses and several pairs of Beats headphones. After such a great accomplishment and in such great weather, everybody was a winner! We are already looking forward to next year. Check out some of the photos.

We would especially like to thank: Dave and Rena Ridenour, ALR Insurance Services, The Fitness Edge, The Friends of Blackhand Gorge, and the Ohio Department of Natural Resources.
