Parade Day 5K, cycle and swim was a success!

(Riverton, Wyo.) – Saturday’s Parade Day 5K, Cycle, Swim event drew over 100 runners, bikers, swimmers, both as individuals and as teams.

Fremont Therapy Group and Go Fremont County, the event organizers, were thrilled with the overwhelming support of this fundraising event bringing in over $10,000 in net proceeds from sponsors and race registrations.  This year all proceeds are designated to go to Steve James and his family as he awaits a heart transplant and the effort to reconstruct the Darcie Zimmer Memorial walkway.

This unique event provided the community with a variety of races, fun competition and a great after-event party with prizes, fitness demonstrations, a full breakfast, shaved-ice and lots of great swag!

The race began with the National Anthem, sang by the Wind River staff, looking on to a giant American flag draping from the Riverton Volunteer Fire Department’s ladder truck.  Leroy Sinner, a long-time coach at the Wind River High School started the racers with a shotgun start.

Overall, more than 20 Fremont County businesses and organizations joined our primary sponsors to provide financial or event support to make this a well-organized, safe and fun event for the entire community to enjoy.

We plan to make this an annual tradition and hope to add even more race venues and activities for the community to enjoy!
