10th Annual Salmon Run this Saturday

BALDWIN — Area residents are gearing up for the 10th Annual Salmon Run, which takes place this Saturday, Sept. Oct. 7.

Registration for the race begins at 8 a.m. with the race starting at 9 a.m., beginning and finishing at the St. Ann’s Senior Center, 960 E. Ninth St., Baldwin.

Proceeds from the Salmon Run, coupled with a chili cook-off on Friday evening, Oct. 6, will benefit services and programs at St. Ann’s Senior Center in Baldwin.

The chili cook-off will be from 4:30 to 8 p.m. also at St. Ann’s Senior Center.

“We have been very busy preparing for the fundraiser,” said Darci Maldonado, event coordinator. “I would love to see 100 people participate in the 10K and 5K. The routes for the run/walk are beautiful, with the 10K passing by locations such as Mench Lake and Hamlin Lake.

“Part of the course is paved, but most is not. It is the same route as last year. It is good knowing there will be money raised at this event to give to services the senior center struggles to pay for. We have a very supportive community.”
