This year will mark the seventh Annual 911 Memorial Mt. Grant Challenge. As the day of the event approaches committee members and volunteers are working out the details of this year’s event.
Once again a Main Street Parade, (5 p.m. lineup, 5:30 p.m. parade) is being slated to include walking our awesome flag for the raising, a memorial service and a free spaghetti dinner at the Veterans Park on Friday evening. We encourage the community to come out and join us for this special event. In addition to a 911 Remembrance, registrants will be able to pick up their packets and enjoy refreshments and entertainment on Friday evening.
Again this year a half challenge will be offered for those who prefer not to tackle the full 17-mile hike. Those who enter the half challenge will be transported to a designated starting line where they will tackle 8.5 miles of the route and ascend to the top.
For those who would like to participate, volunteer or assist in some way there are plenty of opportunities. Chuck King is heading up the volunteer forces and Rob Mathias will be coordinating the parade. If you have questions regarding this event or would like to volunteer, you can send an email to the group’s website http://911mt.grantchallenge.org. Registration details can be accessed through the website or active.com.
