To the editor:
The inaugural Run the Colors of the Arts fundraiser for the Lake Placid Center for the Arts was a great success. It would not have been possible without the support of the many volunteers who offered their time to park cars, organize the start and finish line, direct runners and traffic, work the aid station and, of course, throw colors on the runners and walkers!
We would like to offer a special thank you to Butch Martin, who not only offered the horse show grounds for the event but also met with us on several occasions to figure out the logistics of this new event. Kari Fitzsimmons, from Adirondack Health, gave us valuable insight on the organization and coordination for the run, and the New York State Police were friendly, courteous and professional.
It is events such as this that remind us of what a special community in which we live. Many thanks to all who helped make this event a success. We are already planning next year!
