I would like to take the opportunity to thank all of our sponsors and you, the participants who make our charity work possible and a huge thank you to the City of Freeport and the Freeport Parks Department.
And last but not least, a big thank you to the many Freeport Host Lions Club members for their dedication and hard work in putting this event together.
