Harvest Run thank-you

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.


Nate Bossingham
YMCA program director
