The WRTO Board is sending out a HUGE thank you to American Transmission Company (ATC) for their donation award of $1500 for phase 2A of our trail. Also a BIG thank you to our shoppers, Mara Hird, and her LuLaRoe business for donating over $400 from our event at Double K’s last Wednesday.
Saturday, May 6th we are sponsoring the 1st Trek the Trail, a 5 or 10 K fun walk/run, at the Boscobel Depot Museum. Don’t miss the first fun, as subsequent runs will make you a “Legacy Runner”, as years go by. (It’s a pretty neat thing to say you’ve never missed the event!) For $25/single, or $75/family (which includes 2 adults and 2 youth), you will get a t-shirt and a timed race, with medal awards going to all 10 K finishers. After April 25th, cost will be $25 for each entrant (with no t-shirt). Packet pick-up and same day registration will be available at 8 am, with the run/walk starting at 9 am. Go to http://www.wirivertrail.org/services/trek-the-trail-5k-10k/to register and pay by PayPal. If you wish to pay by check, simply print off the registration form (found on the above website), and mail to WRTO, 125 Vista Place, Boscobel, WI 53805, or come early and sign up the day of the event. There are also forms available at Suppz Gym in Boscobel. Sponsors include Community First Bank, Gunderson Boscobel Hospital and Clinics, Bemis, WRTO, Boscobel Chamber of Commerce, BMZ, Suppz Gym, Krachey’s BP, Superior Trophies, Accurace Timing, American Family Insurance/Mike Friar Agency, and TriCor Insurance Agency. Thank you to our sponsors for creating a fun event for our region! Come enjoy some spring weather! Trek the trail with us!
