Riverside 5K Results and Recap - August 3, 2019

Our Seventh Annual Riverside 5K Run/Walk was another great success!  Over 100 participants arrived to Riverside on a beautiful Saturday morning to support the ministry of Riverside and to enjoy this fun yearly event. Following the race, participants enjoyed fellowship and a breakfast that included bagels, fresh fruit, granola bars, donuts, and ice old beverages.  Several kids were able to participate in the Kids Fun Run around main camp as well.  A cool dip in the pool was the perfect way to refresh after all of that physical activity and friendly competition.  We love that so many families were able to enjoy some time recreating in Riverside's fabulous swimming pool.  All registration fees were able to go directly toward supporting camperships for all youth who want to be a camper at Riverside.  Congratulations to Lutheran Church of Hope - Ames for taking home the Riverside Church's Cup for the second year in a row, and to Austin Wallestad for winning the individual title! Here are all of the results from the morning.
