WOW! What a fun day it was in Brandermill on the 4th of July. Up bright and early, our 192 7.4k runners and walkers proudly raised money for Connors Heroes which will help children with cancer here in Richmond. It was the biggest race in 7.4k history!
The parade went off without a hitch- the BCA staff was overjoyed with the number of community members that participated, cheered, and volunteered. It meant everything to us to see our neighbors smiling!

After the parade, members headed over to Sunday Park for free hot dogs, watermelon, face painting, balloons, and music. Children played, took pictures with the princesses, and sported some awesome face paint thanks to the Art Factory. The Dakota Kinsey Trio put on a show once again that got the people moving.
At the pools, the guards lead super fun games to keep the kiddos cool and entertained.
