The New Frankin Run/Walk Fundraiser



An annual fundraiser the New Frankin Volunteer Fire Department Run/Walk takes place every year. It gets bigger and bigger. It's 20 dollars to run/walk the 1, 3, or 5 miles and participants receive a T-shirt, hot dogs, potato chips, fruit, and donuts. It's the tradition of the volunteer firemen to walk with all their gear no matter what the weather. It's quite the local tradition and the walk, all country back roads, is simply stunning.

Thank you very much for visiting and commenting on Ocala DP!

Lois Anne is a runner and has run two marathons and innumerable 5Ks and 10Ks. I think the benefit runs are the most fun.

Only in Wisconsin would you find a race with people eating potato chips, hot dogs and donuts while they're running.
