Sugar Hill walk/run benefits veterans

By Pamela A. Keene
On Saturday, November 9, downtown Sugar Hill will be the site of the “Veterans’ Day 5K,” a walk/run to benefit two veterans groups. 
“We looked around and saw that there wasn’t an event on Veterans’ Day to honor veterans, so two years ago we started this walk/run,” said Sawyer Regnier, organizer of the event. “It started out small, but it’s growing every year. Our goal is to have at least 120 participants this year.”
The event will raise money for The American Legion Post 127 in Buford, and Pets for Vets. “Both groups serve veterans in different ways, and both are invaluable,” said Regnier, a Marine who served two tours in Iraq. “And this is just one way that we can support them and the important work they do.”
The $25 entry fee includes an event T-shirt. Sponsorship levels are also available, ranging from $250 to $1,000. 
“The city of Sugar Hill has been very cooperative,” he said. “And we are so glad to produce this event to bring attention to our veterans and show them that the community cares.”
