A great time was had by all at this year’s Pete the Purple Bull 5k and Fun Run – held in Riverdale. This is the second year in a row the event has been held in our city and, this time, the City of Riverdale provided a free pancake breakfast in the Community Room at City Hall and the Riverdale Fire Department displayed the US Flag and gave kids a chance to check out the fire trucks.
Thanks to City Council Member Kelly Krell, incoming Council Member Kevin Adams and Caroline Bawden for cooking food. Thanks also to Chris Bernard, Adrian Castillo and other members of the RVFD who helped hoist the flag, roll out the trucks and keep a particularly attentive turkey away from the festivities.
Special thanks also go out to the HABLO (an employee resource group at Arconic) and to MY PLACE in Riverdale for being sponsors of the event which helps QC United raise money to deal with bullying in our schools.
