Despite being disappointed by its cancellation in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, about 85 undaunted runners and walkers returned to West Williamson Saturday, Oct. 2, both to compete in and once again support the second H.O.P.E. (Helping Other People Evolve) 5K Run/Walk and 1-Mile Walk.  Race Director Jessie Spaulding said the race is completely supported through donations and sponsors, and that all proceeds go to the Crossroads Recovery Home in Gilbert, Anchor Point Men’s and Women’s Residential Treatment Facilities in Delbarton, and the Tug Valley Recovery Shelter in Williamson. Spaulding said the race was formed in conjunction with the Tug Valley Road Runners Club in 2019 to bring about more awareness for addiction, reduce the stigma associated with addiction, and to send the message that recovery is possible. “I want to give hope to the hopeless and be a voice for the voiceless,” Spaulding said. Tyelin May was the overall winner with a time of 18:58:4.
