Run for Our Little Roses

Register by August 1 to take part in the “Run for Our Little Roses.”
“We are hoping to make this one much bigger on September 13 as a part of the annual Wings of the Warner festival in Alturas,” says coordinator Dan Roeder of Alturas.
Race pledges will help support the “Our Little Roses” orphanage in Honduras, which takes in abandoned girls and gives them a home and an education. Recent graduates have gone on to become doctors, lawyers, social workers and artisans.  
The race will include a one mile fun run for kids up to age 12 and a 5k, 10k, half marathon for runners over age 12. Registration for the event will include a pledge and runners will be asked to raise additional pledges. The base pledge for the fun run is $15 and the base pledge for the other races is $40. All runners will receive bibs and medals; runners for the 5k, 10k and half marathon will receive a visor. Deadline to register is August 1. For more information and to register, please visit or call Dan Roeder at (320) 267-4867.
