Runners and walkers take off Saturday morning, Nov. 9, for Wellness Matagorda’s Invest in Wellness 5K or 10K in honor of Veterans Day. In the 5K competition, the winners were: first, Emily Schnider, 21:49; second, Mario Lara, 23:58; and Cody Stansberry, 23:59. The 10K winners were: first, Jason Lewis 39:24; and second Gabriel Varga, 44:15. Wellness Matagorda’s fun runs have raised money for the Hike and Bike Trail behind BCHS and the FEMA Dome at MRMC. Proceeds now go for the proposed aquatics center. It’s important to note, Wellness co-chair Loy Sneary said, that all four Matagorda County high schools - BCHS, Van Vleck, Tidehaven and Palacios - were represented at Saturday’s run and showing support for the center.
