Quail Run Results Are In...

River Cities United Way held their 6th Annual Quail Run on Saturday, November 5th. “This year’s event was another great success! The weather was absolutely beautiful and we had 39 adults run the 5K Run/Walk and two kids run in the 1K Kids Run,” stated Dawn Darby, Kingman Area Manager for River Cities United Way. “We raised more than $1,500 for our Kids Bright & Healthy Program which helps to provide medical, dental and vision services to kids whose parents might not be able to afford these services otherwise.”
