Thanks to those who made KR Run successful
July 5, 2017
The 2017 Kootenai River Run was held on a gorgeous summer day on July 1 in Bonners Ferry.

As usual, any event is about as successful as people are willing to donate their time and effort to help. In this case, we had great help. For that, I thank Carolyn Testa, Frank Christensen. David Grainger and Jim Cadnum, all of whom recruited people to help.

On the course, David Brinkman, Denise Crichton, Jan Klopfenstein, Mike Weland, Bob Blanford, Roger Alexander, Connor Alexander, and five intrepid kids of Border Patrol Explorer Post #190, who were: Kaleb Huseby, Judah Draxler, Lexie Levesque, Dina Cook, and Ian Wallace, all came and stood a post on the course, helping to keep everyone safe.

Having either run or helped at many runs over the last 40 years, I can only say with without enough good help, the fun runs people like would not happen.

On behalf of the community, the race organizers, and all the runners and walkers, thank you one and all. It was a great day and a great race.
Jack Douglas
