To the Editor:

I would like to take the time to send out a great big thank you to several people and business!

The 2nd annual Halloween Run/Walk combined with the Strides Against Breast Cancer walk was perfect! We could not have asked for better weather at the end of October and for a fabulous turnout.

The following Putnam County businesses, friends and family are so very appreciated:

The American Cancer Society for partnering with us, Rod and Troy from the Greencastle Parks Dept. for making it possible, Dr. Quiz and staff from Greencastle Internal Medicine for sponsoring our bibs this year. Jessica Hartman Photography for her wonderful photographs.

The following for the generous donations for post-race giveaways: Aromas from Heaven, Extreme Tan, Greencastle Fit for Life, Walmart, Karate Academy, Rock Star window tint, Butlers' LP gas, Family Video, Bright Futures, Kroger in Greencastle and Crawfordsville, Super Wash, Pizza King, Buffalo Wild Wings, Visiting Nurses, Hickory Creek, McDonald's, Monical's, and of course, the Banner Graphic!

A super big thank you to my family and friends who came to staff the event. You guys are awesome.

I'm already looking forward to next year!
