To the editor:
The Lincoln Area YMCA and I would like to thank the
Harvest of Talents for having the Y come back to host our Y Run at
the Harvest of Talents. The Harvest committee was very helpful and
happy to have us host this run at their event. I also want to thank
our generous sponsors, Guzzardo's Italian Villa and Elkhart Grain,
for sponsoring not only our run at the Harvest of Talents, but also
our September run. Thanks again for your support.
The community really came together for this event. The Lincoln
College cross-country team, led by Coach Herron, not only
participated in the event, but also volunteered to give us some
much-needed extra assistance. Jim and Janice Greer were gracious
enough to allow the Y to use their tent for our registration booth.
Our own Lincoln city police were glad to give the runners an escort
to ensure their safety.

Of course, this event could not be run so smoothly without the
help of the YMCA staff and volunteers. These dedicated people really
put in some work to make sure that the run was a success.
With the assistance of all of these folks, we were able to raise
funding for the Harvest of Talents, to fight world hunger, and for
the YMCA scholarship fund, which allows families in need to
participate in Y programs at a discounted rate. With your help we
were able to help many people in need. So thank you once again to
those involved in this worthwhile event.
