The final numbers are in and Kegs N Ks beat all goals the Blue Water Young Professionals board set for this year’s fundraiser.
The race, which was held Sept. 17 at Vantage Point, had more than 320 racers and raised $6,360.
“I think that we pulled off a great race despite the weather,” said Crystal Jahn, BWYP treasurer. “We had a good group of volunteers and we pulled it off with minimal complaints.”
The board originally anticipated around 300 runners and to raise between $4,000 to $5,000.
Jahn said the purpose of the event was to raise general funds for the group. The board will now discuss how the use the money.
In the past the BWYP has devoted money to revitalizing the Black River Walk in downtown Port Huron – a project that is still ongoing.
The main event was the 4K run where participates chugged four ounces of beer each lap, but racers weren’t the only ones having fun. Kegs N Ks also featured a keg toss sponsored by Michigan Specialty Coatings as well as a rockin’ after-party with beer, music, ping pong and corn hole.
Of course, the group couldn’t have a successful event without the help of YP members and friends who gave their time and resources to Kegs N Ks. The BWYP board thanks you all!
The board also thanks the other event sponsors Bell’s Inspired Brewing, Earl Smith Distributing Co., Huron Dental, Road Runner Timing, Penn Station East Coast Subs and Kramer Commercial Realty.
