This event could not have happened without a pair of very special people.  Joy Nies and Peter Witt were the major sponsors for this event and without their generous support the race would not have happened.  Other sponsors as well helped make this a great run for everyone, those sponsors include:

First Christian Church
Dairy Queen/ Karen Smith
St Thomas Episcopal Church in Memory of Rhoda Montgomery
John Atterbury
Peace Lutheran Church
Thomas and Gloria Woodbury
The Family of Rob Chandler

Volunteer groups:
Aggie Habitat
Young Life
Delta Epsilon Mu

Without the support of these great individuals, churches, businesses and organizations, we could not have been able to put on this event,  we want to thank all our sponsors, volunteers and runners/walkers for  making it a great day for BCS Habitat for Humanity, until next year……Keep on running.
