Fourth Annual Run is a Winner for The Club!

September 16, 2013

The weather could not have been better for another successful Connors Hot Dog Stand 5k Wiener Run to benefit the Boys & Girls Club of Lake Shore on Saturday-September 14.

As the photos prove, hundreds of runners, walkers and “costumed condiments” lined up in front of the Evans Town Park under perfectly blue skies and temperatures in the mid-60s — ideal for running a race that follows the beautiful Lake Erie shoreline in the Town of Evans. While the official results will be posted at BuffaloRunners.com, we’re happy to report that Sean Squire ran the best time to win the race.

Race T-Shirt-BACK2013As it has been for four years running, the real success of the race is in the much-needed financial support it raised for The Club, now serving over 300 young people in the Evans-Brant area since it opened in October 2011. That success is a direct result of the hard work and dedication of our club board of directors, our awesome volunteers and the whole Connors-Erickson family that comes together to support the effort. The Club is blessed with a growing list of generous sponsors who so graciously give back to our community, especially our “Big Dog” sponsors: Mickey Rats/Captain Kidd’s, Tops Markets and Wardynski Meats.

Participants and supporters once again enjoyed music and entertainment throughout the day from DJ BobbyG from RhythmNtunes.com and the Disco Duck Band.

We need to give special thanks to the Lake Erie Beach Volunteer Fire Company, their mutual aid partners and the Town of Evans Police Department for keeping everyone safe along the race route; to the AJ Schmidt Elementary School community for providing water and encouragement for the runners; VSP Marketing Graphics who donated all the sponsor signs that lined the course, and to Mrs. Roseann VanKoughnett from Shultz Hardware and Appliances for donating back her winnings from the 50/50 raffle — all are class acts.

Thank you to the hundreds of runners, walkers and crawlers (lol) who turned out for the Fourth Annual Connors Hot Dog Stand 5k Wiener Run, making it a huge success.

Here’s the link to all the photos our photographer took at the race. Please share your pics with us too.
