Runners and Walkers Show Off Spirit in 15th Annual St. Paul Spirit Run/Walk

By: Brett Fuller Last Updated: May 5, 2012

Hundreds of racers came out on a beautiful, but cloudy, spring morning to help raise funds for St. Paul Catholic Church on May 5, 2012.

The 15th Annual St. Paul Spirit Run featured a 5K race, part of the Calumet Region Striders Gold Cup Series, along with a non-competitive walk, with the goal of raising some money for the school and church, all in a fun and healthy way.

The course for the race is particularly difficult, with several turns and hills through the lovely Oakwood neighborhood in Valparaiso, across the street from the St. Paul Church.

A special thanks to sponsors of the race, including Cavanaugh & Nondorf Orthodontics, Charles & Jessica Greiner III, Team Chevrolet, Oak Partners, Inc., Lakeshore Bone & Joint Institute, Hartman & Hartman P.C., County Line Orchard, and Obstetricial & Gynecological Associates, Inc.

We have over 300 photos up in a gallery, with all of the photos available for sale, starting as low as $4 each.
