STEPPING ACROSS THE FINISH LINE FOR STEPPING STONES
Seen here from left to right (back): The first-place adult
winner of the running portion of the race was Chase Welsch, who won his race registration in a raffle sponsored by his employer, WESTconsin Credit Union. Just a minute later, Micah Laz Davis took silver as he crossed the finish line of the 5K pushing his daughter, Mae, in her stroll. Less than a minute later, Beth Abing came in third to capture bronze. In the kids’ division(front), Ben Bowman took gold, silver was earned by Scott Holcomb, and Peyton Wiseman followed for bronze.

A bright autumnal sun shone down on the starting line of Stepping Stones’ 3 rd annual Step Up To Hunger 5K Walk/Run. On Saturday, Sept. 28, the Red Cedar Trail in Menomonie was the scene as supporters of all ages and sizes gathered to “Step Up” to prevent hunger in the community.

Each registrant received a swag bag filled with goodies donated by area businesses, and the race was followed by a chili feed at the nearby Riverside Park shelter. Gold medal sponsor Anthem Blue Cross & Blue Shield helped make this year’s family-friendly event possible, along with silver medal sponsors Jim and Patti Walker and bronze medal sponsors, Ellen Ochs, Skinner Law Firm LLC, Conagra Brands, WESTconsin Credit Union, Thrivent Financial and Colfax Chevrolet.
