“The accolades continue to come in from our sponsors, participants and spectators,” said Peter Bromley, past president of Bluffton Self Help and Hampton Lake resident. The Sixth Annual Tiger Bass Run held in Hampton Lake to benefit Bluffton Self Help was a huge success!
“It was by far the largest and best event yet,” Bromley stated, adding that 300 people participated in the three events. The race commenced with The U. S. Marines presenting colors and a stirring rendering of the National Anthem was sung by Leann Rimes. The runners and walkers gathered at the starting line to wait for the shot gun start and off they went participating in either a one mile fun walk/run, 5K and/or 12K. Families and other supporters walked the beautiful course through Hampton Lake pushing strollers and carrying toddlers to finish the route.
The after-party, complete with refreshments and trophies, capped off the days activities.
Special thanks to residents of Hampton Lake who worked so hard on the race committee and race day, volunteers who showed up in support of the efforts and the many sponsors who supported this annual event.
Especially heartwarming and appreciated were the residents of Hampton Lake showing their enthusiasm from boats honking out their support and residents along the route banging on pots/pans, cheering the runners and walkers on.
This was truly a community event showcasing a remarkable community, Hampton Lake in Bluffton.
Note: The David Weekley Fishing Tournament” will be held next month, another annual event to support Bluffton Self Help.
