I had the privilege of being at the finish line of the MyoMed Ragnar Wasatch Back Relay this past Saturday and I want to extend a well-earned “congratulations” to Dan Hill and Tanner Bell.
Operation Kids was there when these two young men decided to take action on what was then, a very ambitious and untested idea. It was truly amazing to be part of what this event has become in just a few short years.
The feeling of community and camaraderie at the end of this relay race is just incredible (I suppose 24 hours with your teammates will either make you friends or, well, not-so-friendly). I don’t know how they do it, but this race attracts nice people! It was such a pleasure to greet them as they were unwinding or waiting for the rest of their team and listen to their enthusiasm for the race and for supporting Operation Kids. I even learned, quite by accident, that a very good friend of mine was in Park City all the way from Truckee, California to run in this race with a team his daughter put together. Way to go Gary!
Dan and Tanner, you have built a great event and it is our pleasure to be your benefited charity here in Park City, and nationwide.
