Sports Commission honored by City Council
The Greater Wichita Area Sports Commission was honored today during the Wichita City Council Meeting. Bob Hanson accepted an appreciation award on behalf of the organization for their success with the annual Prairie Fire Marathon.
The 2015 Prairie Fire Marathon attracted 3,825 runners from 39 states and six countries. By using their expertise in event production, the Sports Commission is able to create a festive, fun and energizing atmosphere for runners in the core of the city.
During his comments, Hanson said an event of this magnitude would not be possible without the support of the sponsors, volunteers and citizens of the community. He added that $10,000 would be given to local charities and organizations this fall, bringing the total to over $100,000 since 2010.
Hanson also gave Councilman Pete Meitzner his 3rd place award he won in his age division for the Mayor's 5K Challenge.
