There were a few more names to mention who helped make the 1st Inaugural Ralph Painter Memorial Run a success: Blumenthal Uniforms and Equipment for providing the shirts. Thank you Bill Beckham for making that happen. That was huge for us. Gavin Hughes for carving the plaque that will hang at Rainier City Hall. It was absolutely beautiful. Thanks Gavin. Our Sheriff's Office volunteers Jennifer Herbst, Bart Ekhoff and Pat LaPointe. Their expertise in traffic control was invaluable. Thank you guys so much. One last person was mentioned but it was a misprint, Russ Hall, our picture expert. Thank you Russ and Sarah for doing such an awesome job. Thanks everybody!
