12th Annual Salute 5K & 10K Run

Blog#239-Salute May 24, '15 - 12 of 18

For the 12th year I have had the honor and privilege to provide the sound system and music for The Salute (http://www.saluteinc.org) 5K & 10K Run and Walk in Arlington Heights. With well over 900 runners supporting our troops and their families the event did not disappoint. I setup two systems, one at Minor School for the start & the other at Recreation Park for the finish. Played Chicago Oldies as the runners warmed up and spectators arrived, put on The Rolling Stones “Start Me Up” as the gun started the runners and as always played from both our Pariotic Collection (http://www.windycityhitman.com/630/patriotic/) and from our Salute Collection of Running and Rock Songs as the runners approached the finish line. Great weather, always good to work with Bonnie Greene, and a special thanks to my great group of volunteer students who assisted me in a great way in setting up and taking down the equipment. As a bonus I already knew them and they already knew me as “Mr. Gary” because they had me on numberous occasions as their substitute teacher at Thomas Middle School.
