Posted: Monday, Oct 7th, 2013

ALAMOSA – First timers and long timers, walkers and runners, volunteers and donors – most all of them wearing long-sleeved, pastel-pink t-shirts – showed up in Cole Park on Oct. 5 to continue a decade-long tradition of supporting the Stephanie L. Miner Women’s Imaging Center at SLV Health Regional Medical Center. More than 800 people registered for the 10th Annual Stephanie L. Miner 5k Walk and Run; along with the dozen-plus businesses who signed on as supporters, they helped to raise more than $31,000 for the imaging center.

Participants arrived under a pink balloon arch at the park’s First Street entrance. Geraldine Trujillo and her daughter Nicole made sure of that, as they have since the first walk. “We are in charge of the arch all the time,” said Geraldine, who comes before sunrise to help construct the arch out of helium balloons. Nicole said. “It’s our bonding time. We always do the arch together.”
