Letter: Grand River Gallop thanks

Grand River Gallop runners included the Grand River "Strollers."

Grand River Meals on Wheels would like to sincerely thank our wonderful community for the support for our 20th annual Grand River Gallop. A special thank you to all of our volunteers who rally together every year, making this event run smoothly.

We would also like to extend our sincere gratitude to our overall Charity Race sponsors: Alpine Bank, Rifle Recreation, Independence Run and Hike and Grand River Health, along with our Gallop Super Hero sponsor: FCI Constructors.

A final shout out goes to our all our other generous sponsors: South Bank Secure Storage, Crabtree Red Canyon Auto Body, Bank of Colorado, Mountain Pest Control, RifleWorks, Bookcliff Survey Services, Impressions of Aspen, Inc., Shale Tech International Services, LLC., and Taxkeeping LLC. Thank you to Garfield County Road & Bridge and to the dedicated team of volunteers who stuff the goody bags, set up the course, and cheered on the participants.

Twenty years of making the Grand River Gallop is amazing and community support is what this event is all about. But the real winners are our Meals on Wheels clients.

And, of course, we want to thank all who came out and ran (or walked) in the event and who went the extra mile and wore their superhero outfits – this world needs more superheroes. All of these things speak volumes on how you support the homebound seniors and disabled in our community. Together, we can keep seniors living independently, healthier at home, and feeling more connected to their community.

Debi Billings,

Grand River Health, Meals on Wheels program
