Dayna organized the first annual Wakefield Covered Bridge Race, which occurred this morning, April 17th.
The event was a great success with over 300 people participating, and we raised $12,000.00 for our recreation center. This was also a prelaunch to the Marathon of Health and people were very excited about our upcoming adventure. The racing started at 10am and it was raining up until 9:30am. All of a sudden the sun came out for all the events, and a couple of hours after completion, rain, snow and very strong winds appeared. We look at this as a positive omen for things to come with our journey across Canada and the US.
The photo is of Dr. Ed as he crosses the bridge and finished 4th overall in the 5km run. Not bad for an old guy
