Running For a Reason

      

On Sunday, June 8, 2014, a few of Yazoo Mills’ employees along with their spouses and children participated in Gold’s Gym Hanover’s 1st Annual 5K Walk/Run.  The 5K was held to benefit the American Red Cross and participants raised over $2,000.00 to support the cause.  The race started at 8am and the weather couldn’t have been any better.  The 112 runners and walkers set out on a 3.1 mile trek that included shady lanes, sunny roads, and a few hills.  Wes Eckert, son of Yazoo Mills’ President, placed 3rd in the 18 & under category with a finish time of 24:19!

Yazoo Mills was very supportive with this event.  In fact, any employee that registered and completed the race, was reimbursed their registration fee.
