Wade Ginkens Memorial 4K draws large crowd

The Wade Ginkens Memorial 4K was held Wednesday, July 4.  A large crowd of 97 participants began registration around 7:30 a.m.  After listening to a few instructions on safety, the group recited the pledge of allegance.  In memory of Wade, the crowd was asked to put a smile on their face the rest of the day.  The bang of a firecracker started the race.  Bikers went out first, followed by runners, and then walkers.  There were no wheelchair participants, but there were a few strollers.
