Thank you to participants in first 5K for Justice

Letter to the editor

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. — To the editor:

We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who participated in the first annual 5K Race for Justice on Oct. 9. We at the London Department of Public Advocacy and the Commonwealth Attorney’s Office are truly appreciative of all of the runners who came out, and would like to particularly honor the American veterans who ran with us that morning, showing their support for London’s Welcome Home to Vietnam Veterans.  We are honored to have had the opportunity to host our race in support of that event.

We would also like to convey special thanks to Brandon Storm, attorney at law, who was the primary race sponsor. Brandon has asked us to express his appreciation to all of our veterans, and to state that he feels privileged to have participated in an event honoring America’s heroes.

We would like to extend our gratitude, as well, to all of the race sponsors: Hamm, Milby & Ridings, Saint-Joseph London, Brandon Jones, Laurel County Office of the Commonwealth Attorney, Hair Peace Salon and WCTT 107.3.
