Volunteers help River Run

Most public events could not happen without the help of volunteers. The annual Redwood Wild River Run, held Saturday, March 21, was very fortunate to have many excellent volunteers.

Some of these wonderful people come year after year to help make the runs a successful and happy event. They help with registration, set signs and equipment up, collect number-name tags for the scoreboard, are timers for both the 5- and 15-kilometer races, put names and times on scoreboards, offer water and fruit, and man the aid station.

Steve and Debbie Berg have manned the aid station for many years offering water, encouragement and music. Steve plays the banjo and sings, even on rainy runs. When runners hear the music, they know they are close to the aid station. What a nice way to be greeted and encouraged!

The volunteers for this year’s Redwood Wild River Run were Mona Reich, Cliff Johnson, Lara Hirt, Kirk Roberts, Barbara and Larry Neumann, Mike Castagnola, the Del Norte Track Team, and Steve and Debbie Berg.

The event attracted more than 120 attendees, including participants from Curry and Humboldt counties.

“Economic growth and business enhancement is important to the Latino community,” stated founder Rene Quintana. “Now is the time for Latino business to grow and continue to employ local residents.”

The Del Norte Latino Business Association presented an award to Carmen Chavez-Fong for her years of  service to the community. An award was presented to the mother of Tania Torres, who at a young age passed away last year. Tania was recognized as a community leader and major contributor to the Latino community.

Young athlete is Austria-bound

Grace M. Bruschi. Submitted Photo
Grace M. Bruschi, 11, of Del Norte County was recently accepted to attend the “People to People Sports Ambassador Program” to be held in Austria in July.

 Grace has been involved in local youth sports since she was 5 years old. She has done basketball, softball, wrestling and even youth football, helping her team to take championship this last year.

When Grace’s parents received the letter of nomination for her to attend this event, they were totally excited and Grace was extremely excited. Although the expense is overwhelming, the family has set out to make a very energetic girl happy and a dream come true.

This is Grace’s hometown as she was born here and is of Native American heritage. Of course we wouldn’t even think about this being possible without the help of our friends and families of the community.

Grace’s family will hold a spaghetti feed fundraiser  April 25 from 4 to 8 p.m. at the Elk Valley Rancheria Community Center, 2298 Norris Ave.

For more information call 465-3786.
