Run/Walk Helps Veterans

The sixth Annual 5K Run/Walk for Veterans was June 17 at the Town Park in Winfield. A special thank you to Commander Walter J. Will of the American Legion Post 1058 for the Color Guard, which was a combination of the American Legion Post 1058 and VFW 2338.

Also a special thanks to Pastor Ken from the Federated Church for the blessing, and all of our sponsors, supporters and volunteers that made this event a success.

The run is part of the Route 20 Road Challenge.

Overall male winner was Cole Zuk with a time of 20:17 and overall female winner was Amanda Mazza with a time of 23:12. They were presented with red, white and blue hanging baskets provided by Sirko’s Greenhouse and Farm. There were a total of 54 participants, the most ever.

A check for $3,600, $100 in gift certificates and many bags of canned goods was presented to Richard Synek, founder of Feed Our Vets and Joseph Ancona Pantry Director. The Feed Our Vets Pantry is at 502 Broad Street, Utica.
