Serving the Washington & Oregon Communities of the Columbia River Gorge
On April 20, CGRC hosted a Run for Boston group run/walk. Watching the tragic events unfold 3000 miles away, we felt helpless, angry and sad. Like people everywhere, we wanted to show support the best way we knew how: lacing up our running shoes. We wanted to tell the world that we stand with Boston and are thinking about all of those impacted. We are proud to send the $200 we collected on behalf of the Columbia Gorge Running Club to One Fund Boston to benefit the people most affected by the tragic events.
