Come celebrate July 4th at Murphys Park with the Patriots 5k and 2 miler. This is a great event to celebrate the Powell community, family, friends and neighbors. Runners, walkers and strollers can tour the beautiful streets of Powell on this flat family friendly course. Events will start at 8:00 AM so participants will have plenty of time to enjoy the rest of the holiday.

We met in Liberty Middle School and became friends extremely quickly. We then joined the Cross Country team in 7th grade and discovered our passion for running. We have learned how to be physically and mentally tough by pushing ourselves and each other. Through running Cross Country, we have learned one lesson above all others. At the end of the race, it isn’t about the time on the clock, but doing your best and leaving all out on the course.

Last year our fellow teammate and runner Tomas Gonzalez started the Patriots 5k on the 4th race. He entrusted us to follow in his footsteps and continue the tradition, and eventually pass it on to another teammate next year. This opportunity allows us to grow together as a team, runners and as members of the Powell community.

This year, we will continue to work with Soles 4 Souls. This is a charitable organization that collects new and used shoes and give them to people in need. They have generously donated 30 million pairs of shoes to 127 countries and all 50 states! So please join us on the morning of July 4th and bring any new/used shoes that can be donated to help people in need.
