Organizer appreciates support for charity run

To the editor:

On a cold and rainy Saturday morning Oct. 27, 167 people, many dressed in costume, supported the first Trick or Trot 5K Family Fun Run, benefiting the Cody Jewell Memorial Scholarship Fund.

As the chairwoman of this event, I want to extend my heartfelt gratitude for the support from my amazing community. From local businesses making donations to the many families participating in this event, I am forever grateful for the support that Hilliard showed.

This is just another reminder of the wonderful community that we live in, coming together to make a difference in the lives of its citizens.

Because of the outpouring of support, the Cody Jewell Memorial Scholarship Fund will be able to again award a graduating senior from Bradley, Darby and Davidson high schools a $1,000 scholarship to help offset the cost of college tuition.

Thank you to the amazing community of Hilliard.
