Peppermint Ridge hosted its 14th Annual Run the River for the Ridge on September 14th at Hidden Valley Nature Center. Over 340 participants lined up at the starting line and ran on the trail in support of Peppermint Ridge! The Half Marathon race kicked off the run, followed by the 10K, 5K and 1K.
There was a vibrant vendor fair that featured local businesses, organizations and non-profits. AO Coolers, Arthritis Foundation and Crunch Fitness donated items to the raffle, bringing in even more support for the men and women of Peppermint Ridge. Families and friends cheered on the runners during the medal ceremony. It was a morning full of fitness, fun and friendship.
We are so thankful for all of the volunteers who spent their morning hard at work. We could not be successful without their support!
