6/16 Backyard Half and 1st Concert in the Park Fundraisers

Sat, 06/16/2012 - 10:00am - 6:00pm
Newsreel Until: 

Reserve the date of Saturday, June 16 for the Backyard Half Trail Run and the 1st Summer Concert in the Park, an exciting start to summer fun. 

Starting at 10:00 am from Rheingarten Park in White Salmon we'll kick off the FREE 5th annual Backyard Half-marathon Trail Run supporting the White Salmon Cross Country team.  The run loops up and around Hospital Hill, with 1,800 feet of elevation gain, and back to the park.  As the runners return to the park they'll be met with free live music and a Pool fundraiser lunch of Henni's sliders and Everybody's beer.  What better way to build an appetite? 

Then at 3:00 we'll continue the fun with the 1st concert in the FREE Mt Adams Chamber Summer Concert Series featuring wildly popular surprise entertainment. This continues the  Pool fundraiser with a full Henni's pulled-pork slider meal ($7), Everybody's beer ($4), and/or sodas ($1) as well as a fast-raffling bunch of great prizes.

Once again, the 5th Annual White Salmon Backyard Half trail run is FREE to enter! You can sign up without donating, then if you can spare a little change, you can donate at the run. A suggested donation of $10, more or less, will go to the White Salmon Columbia High School Cross Country Team who will be staffing all the aid stations!  Last year 208 runners donated over $2,500 for the completely self-funded White Salmon Cross Country team! Hopefully this year we can make a goal of $3,000 to cover their costs for the whole season.  Sign up now at:
