Cherokee County Fire and Emergency Services won the 2015 Guns and Hoses Run that was held this past Saturday at Hobgood Park.  Cherokee County Fire and Emergency Services had the most runners to sign up for the event, plus the overall runner for the event was a member of the Hoses team, too.

Cherokee County Fire and Emergency Services and the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office solicit registrations from runners to raise money for charity. The event was open to the public and runners were asked to pick the team they wanted to run for, Guns or Hoses, and part of their registration fee was donated to an area charity. 
 
The fire department donated their winnings to the Goshen Valley Boys Ranch. The purpose Goshen Valley Boys Ranch, which is located in Salacoa, is to provide hope and a family-model home for boys who do not have either.
 
According to a representative with the Cherokee County Recreation and Parks Agency, 360 runners signed up for the fire department, while 269 signed up with the sheriff’s office. The Goshen Valley Boys Ranch will receive a check in the amount of $3,600.
 
Eighteen year old Sam Harp, the overall winner of the 5K race and a member of the Hoses team, finished the race in 17 minutes and 17 seconds beating his time last year by 50 seconds. This is the fourth year straight that Sam has been the overall winner of the race. Sam is the son of Lyle and Cheri Harp. Sam’s dad is a firefighter with Cherokee County Fire and Emergency Services.
 
Thanks all of those who came out to support this event!
