Ran the Brinkerhoff 5K this past Saturday. It seems the 5k’s in western New York just keep getting better. The Brinkerhoff run is no exception. It is a great event for anyone looking to do something fun and active. The course is 3.1 miles of short hills through scenic paths in the heart of North Boston, NY. The 5k& 10k is a tribute to Trooper David Brinkerhoff who was killed in the line of duty. The event saw more than 600 participants in it’s 3rd year. It’s no surprise that such an event brings in so many individuals from all around the Western New York area. It’s great to see so many people supporting officers who put their lives at risk every time they step out in uniforms. Proceeds and donations from the race went to the Brinkerhoff Scholarship. In addition, to being part of a wonderful cause participants were also able to partake in the fun post – race activities that included putt – putt, helicopter shows, free beer and ice cream. Doesn’t get any better than that.
