Hoses Win Guns and Hoses Run Held This Past Weekend

February 26, 2018

Cherokee County Fire and Emergency Services won the 2018 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.

Cherokee County Fire and Emergency Services and the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office solicit registrations from runners to raise money for their charities. 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 Lindsey Collett, a representative with the Cherokee County Recreation and Parks Agency, 503 runners signed up for the fire department, while 281 signed up with the sheriff’s office. The Goshen Valley Boys Ranch will receive a check in the amount of $6,036.

Thanks all of those who came out to support this event!
