The City of Grand Terrace recently held its 1st Annual Grand Terrace Veterans 5K Run to raise funds for the ‘Veterans Wall of FREEDOM’ monument to be built in the city’s Pico Park and Raceway Ford was a proud sponsor of this great community event. Almost 150 runners braved the high temps and humidity and had a great run on the relatively flat course that was lines with many volunteers and community members cheering and waving signs. The event was put on by the Grand Terrace Lions Club and the community support for a first time run was really impressive. Many volunteers also came out and made the event a well run and efficient activity, keeping the runners supplied with water at many stations along the route was critical and much appreciated! Team Raceway Ford was also there to show support with a team of runners! Our Vice President of Marketing Bill Chamberlain, Assistant General Manager Paul Cole and our man Mike theCarGuy all put on bibs and ran their best! Bill and Paul each claimed the 2nd Place in their age divisions with our resident ‘running man’ Paul posting a blistering 24:07 in the Inland Empire heat! A great time was had by all and some funds were raised for a great cause. We have posted some pics of the event on our Facebook page HERE and to learn how you can help support the ‘Veterans Wall of FREEDOM’ see their website HERE.
