The Rim Country Challenge/Home Run race committee wishes to thank all members of the Payson community who helped make our 1/2 marathon/5-k/youth run and spaghetti dinner a success. Special appreciation goes to the Mazatzal Casino Hotel for being our presenting sponsor. Our community and especially Habitat for Humanity are fortunate in having such a compassionate organization working with us.
We give extra thanks to Payson Concrete & Materials Inc., Knights of Columbus, Chapman Auto Center, Pepsi Cola Bottling Co., Sparkletts Drinking Water, Payson Athletic Club, Hammer Nutrition Co., Bashas, Summit Silkscreen, Mazatzal Casino Gift Shop, Dr. Alan Michels, and the Town of Payson Parks and Recreation Department for going above and beyond in their commitment to our cause.
I would also like to acknowledge the members of the race committee: Wayne Donnay, Fran Doering, Bev Graff, Deb Rose, Mary McMullen, Scott Graff, Mark Smith, Earl Davis, Brenda Mouw, Peggy Miles, Cynthia Poole, Wayne Gorry, John Zilisch, Gene Sampson, Lynn Andrews, and the office staff at Habitat for Humanity. Their dedication and hard work over several months to assure the success of this event is commendable.
Thanks and congratulations go to Natalie Black for winning the T-shirt design. She did a great job.
We thank all contestants from the elementary and middle schools for their designs. It was very difficult to select just one winner.
We also appreciate close to 100 volunteers who helped on race day and the spaghetti dinner.
We also thank the newspapers and radio stations for helping us inform Payson of the event.
In addition, we thank the participants and their families for entering the runs.
